A Guide to Complete Streets in your Town

From AARP/Local Motion
Complete Streets Cover 200pxWant to make your town's streets better for walking and biking?
Check out AARP Vermont's new Complete Streets A Guide for Vermont Communities.
This guidance document provides information on the requirements of VT’s Complete Streets legislation. 
With the support of many Vermont organizations, Complete Streets legislation was passed in 2011 and requires that the needs of all users of all ages (drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and public transit) be considered in all transportation projects and project phases. 
By educating Vermont community leaders and providing examples of Complete Streets treatments we hope this document will serve as an important resource for implementation of the act.
This guide was made possible with funding from the Vermont Department of Health’s Fit and Healthy Vermonters Program. Technical expertise and oversight was provided by AARP Vermont, Vtrans, Vermont Department of Economic, Housing and Community Development, Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, and the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.
A limited number of printed copies are available at AARP. Please contact me or 802-951-1313 to request a hard copy.
