Complete Streets are planned, designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities should be able to safely travel along and across any street.

This Overview Presentation will provide a background on the benefits of Complete Streets, explain how existing streets can be retrofitted into Complete Streets, and explore how a Complete Streets policy can help achieve transportation, health, and other community goals.
