What are the elements of the Complete Streets Project?

Multimodal - Designed for users of all ages and all modes of transportation in a safe and comfortable fashion.

  1. Transit Equality Invites all users to enjoy the downtown environment in a courteous and safe way.
  2. Minimum Lane Widths Narrower roadways result in safer vehicle speeds and encourage the accommodation of pedestrians and bicyclists.
  3. Wide Sidewalks Accessible and unobstructed walkways encourage pedestrians to leave their vehicles behind and explore downtown on foot.
  4. Accessible Surfaces Slip-resistant and easily navigated materials in recognizable patterns contribute to welcoming environments for people of all ages and abilities.
  5. Trail Connectivity Linking to local trail networks increases transportation options.

Conscious - Efficient and easily maintained public spaces (including streets) encourage healthy and environmentally friendly communities.

  1. Ease of Maintenance Use quality durable materials. Planned maintenance for the upkeep of special features that enhance downtown life.
  2. Street Trees Shade and beauty contribute directly to the patron experience while providing refuge from the heat and bland environments.
  3. Greenscape Vegetation in key locations can soften built environments and contribute to improved air quality and pollution reduction.

Smart - Physical and digital information infrastructure provides real-time data and safety.

  1. Intelligent Sensors, Signals, and Cameras Manage traffic and events in real-time. Increases safety and efficiency. Data collection infrastructure is an essential component.
  2. Curb Side Management Stations Provide designated areas for drop-off and pick up for Transportation Network Companies as well as deliveries.
  3. Wayfinding and Signage Make direction-finding readily available. Signs and architectural elements contribute to local character and district branding.
  4. Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations New generations of electric and clean-fuel vehicles continue to increase in use. Charging stations provide a waypoint for local and distant travelers alike.
