Municipalities began passing complete street ordinances

Complete Streets Policy

Mid-America Regional Council began to increase their outreach efforts to work with local jurisdictions on adopting and implementing complete street policies. Complete streets are roadways designed for safe and convenient travel by users of all ages and abilities, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. Complete street policies are recognized as an important element in achieving both a comprehensive transportation system and in improving public safety and promoting good health.
