Complete Streets Becoming More Whole
October 24, 2012 Leave a comment
City plans for Complete Streets are slowly becoming a bit more comprehensive. Last Wednesday night, the San Clemente Planning Commission approved a new mobility plan to their city General Plan. A few exciting highlights from their comprehensive “Policy Framework-Draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan” include:
- We shall incorporate bicycle accommodations into all land use plans and capital improvement projects.
- (The city shall) include skateboarding as a legitimate form of transportation as a policy, and include programs to evaluate and revise ordinances as necessary to accommodate safe skateboard use.
- Support the creation of comprehensive safety awareness programs for pedestrians, skateboarders, cyclists and drivers.
- The city shall measure non-motorized trips and vehicle trip productions, especially at local schools, so as to monitor mode share goal progress.
