Complete Streets integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. Hundreds of communities across the country have already adopted Complete Streets policies—the next step is to implement them.

Last week the National Complete Streets Coalition held a webinar that offered transportation planners, engineers, and practitioners insights about turning policies on paper into changes on the ground. The webinar provided an overview of the Complete Streets planning-to-design process; how Complete Streets and active transportation are impacting communities’ health and economy; get tips on what to consider when starting a Complete Streets project; learn strategies for design retrofits; and hear case studies of places that have done it successfully.

For those who weren’t able to join us last Thursday, the presentation slides are now available.

Joining the discussion were Emiko Atherton, Director of National Complete Streets Coalition and Mike Rutkowski PE AICP, Principal at Stantec and National Complete Streets Coalition Steering Committee Member.

Want more help implementing Complete Streets than a webinar can provide? Consider scheduling a Complete Streets workshop. The National Complete Streets Coalition workshop program responds to state and local agencies’ need to learn how to balance the needs of all users and develop and implement effective policies and procedures to routinely create networks of Complete Streets. Our workshops take participants far beyond the typical session focused on design specifics to an understanding of how to transform the decision-making process itself. Sign up today!
