Boston Complete Streets: Design Guidelines 2013


A product of a unique city-wide stakeholder collaboration, the City of Boston’s Transportation Department developed guidelines for the future of streets in one of the nation’s first and most diverse cityscapes. With a strategic vision of designing a Complete Streets model that works for a city with distinctive people, places, and needs in mind, Boston looks forward to integrating multi-modal design to make streets safe and accessible for all users, to make streets greener through investment in energy efficiency, landscaping and low impact surfaces, and to make streets smart through development of information infrastructure to improve the public’s mobility and experiences. The report includes detailed information, complete with graphics, schematics, and proposed zoning policy considerations.
