The Best Complete Streets Policies of 2014

Smart Growth

In February 2015, the Smart Growth America’s National Complete Streets Coalition published a report on eleven communities that have made significant advancements in developing comprehensive and successful Complete Streets policies. Currently, only 712 jurisdictions in the United States have adopted a Complete Streets development model. These policies have not only made streets safer for all users, but they also make the community more functional and connected to opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, incomes, ethnicities and modes of travel. The report includes policy language implemented by the highlighted communities and lessons for how policy and decision-makers elsewhere can transform the way places are planned, designed, constructed, operated, and maintained.
