February California Complete Streets Action Team Meeting

Background: 

In California, Complete Streets Policy Legislation exists at the state level with AB1358 (2008), requiring cities and counties to include complete streets policies as part of their general plans as they are updated.  There is also statewide policy on Complete Streets at Caltrans through Deputy Directive 64-R1, and revisions to the CA Highway Design Manual are taking place now.  Throughout California, many counties and other local jurisdictions have, or are in the process of implementing complete streets policies.

This action team will be meeting via conference call on  February 15th, 10-11 am.
