The Complete Streets Bill Moves Forward
November 16, 2012
The Complete Streets Bill was approved by the City Streets & Services Committee and is advancing to the City Council for full approval. This new policy encourages safer transportation for all modes of travel – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and automobiles. Additionally, the policy requires city agencies to review all projects with the Complete Streets Checklist to ensure that new development projects in the city take consideration of transportation safety by following the road design treatments described in the Complete Streets Handbook.
The Complete Streets Handbook identifies preferred multi-modal street designs and best-management practices to improve transportation for all types of roadways in Philadelphia. These designs reflect the changing needs for all modes of travel in the city and will increase safety as well as mobility for all Philadelphians.
