The complete streets movement is based on a simple idea: streets should be safe for people of all ages and abilities, whether they are walking, driving, bicycling, or taking the bus. Completing Our Streets provides the strategies, tools, and inspiration needed to translate this idea into real and lasting change in cities and towns of all sizes.
Completing Our Streets begins with the story of how the complete streets movement united bicycle riders, transportation practitioners and agencies, public health leaders, older Americans, and smart growth advocates to dramatically re-frame the discussion of transportation safety. It explores the policy changes needed for a successful complete streets program, and it discusses how to get the process started.
Completing Our Streets shares stories from places big and small that are adopting a complete streets approach to all of their transportation projects.
