Complete Streets are streets that are created with all users in mind. This changes the current approach to making a city bike and pedestrian friendly the normal thing to consider. A complete streets policy guarantees that transportation planners and engineers consistently create the roadway with all users in mind, including bicyclists, public transportation, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.
Walking with a Purpose, walkability assessments, are available for communities as well as schools. The tools give ideas on where to complete the assessment, community members to invite to the assessment, a walkability checklist, discussion questions, potential class projects to consider, and resources.
