Complete Streets

Complete Streets are roadways designed, implemented, operated, and maintained in an equitable and context-sensitive manner so that people of all ages, incomes, and abilities can use them safely. These streets consider the needs of all people, including, but not limited to, people: walking, bicycling, using shared mobility devices and assistive devices, using transit and riding school buses, driving, and operating commercial and emergency vehicles.

Complete Streets Toolkit

The Complete Streets Toolkit is a resource for planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining Complete Streets. You will find guidance and best practices related to engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, evaluation, land use, and parking management, among other topics. Additionally, the document contains model policies that can serve as a template for creating a Complete Streets policy in your community. There is also a two-page fact sheet on our policy.
