The Complete Streets Summit provided an educational opportunity for people to learn how to create an environment that supports more than moving cars from one point to another. It established how designing our streets for people, rather then just cars; can have a larger benefit for the our community’s residents, businesses and municipalities. Whether its improved health, a cleaner environment or enhanced economic activity and competitiveness – cities and regions are creating Complete Streets to achieve multiple goals.
The Summit highlighted these benefits, provided exemplary national best practices for implementation and launched a campaign to bring people into the equation when designing our streets in the future. Visit our new website to learn more about Complete Streets, get your neighborhood involved and access national best practices to become part of the growing Complete Streets movement in our community.
The ultimate goal is to create all inclusive access passage ways that takes all travelers into consideration as active lifestyles and healthy communities are promoted. An implementation example of such streetscape adaptations is the Ellicott Park construction along the east side of the main spine of Medical Campus down Ellicott Street.
