Complete Streets Action Team – March Meeting

Photo Credit: Dan Burden

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.

On our February call, local city staff mentioned that it would be helpful to hear from cities that are currently in the process of drafting Complete Streets to facilitate peer to peer learning.  If your city would like to participate please join us on our next call.

This action team will be meeting via conference call on  March 14th, 10-11 am.
