The Complete Streets Policy:
The policy requires that the city consider infrastructure components identified as feasible into existing public streets to create a comprehensive, integrated and connected transportation network. The city will work to incorporate these components into its early planning and design of transportation projects.
Components may include sidewalks and crosswalks, lighting, bicycle accommodations, transit shelters, signage and other infrastructure elements. There are some exceptions to Complete Streets principles, however, because not all roadways are suitable for these components. These exceptions are outlined in the policy.
