|What's on Tap: Complete Streets
5:30 pm — 7:59 pm
Complete Streets is a transportation policy and design approach that requires streets to be planned, designed, operated, and maintained to enable safe, convenient and comfortable travel and access for users of all ages and abilities regardless of their mode of transportation. It emphasizes good planning and design of roadways and adjoining facilities to facilitate safety, accessibility, and mobility.
Important are considerations of the needs of older people, children, and people with disabilities who may often have limited travel options. The Complete Streets concept focuses not only on individual roadways but also on changing the decision-making and design processes to consider the needs of all users during the planning, design, construction, and operation of all roadways. Many communities have found that if done in advance as an integrated best practice and not as an afterthought, a Complete Streets approach can reduce the need for retrofitting and making safety and accessibility improvements after projects are built.
