The Safe Routes to School National Partnership blog is covering the big Greater Washington news of a regional Complete Streets policy! National Capital Transportation Planning Board (TPB) adopted a Complete Streets policy at their meeting this week! The policy specifically endorses Complete Streets and encourages member jurisdictions to adopt their own policies.
As I have said before, we live in the whole region. A dividing line between jurisdiction is arbitrary to pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and motorists. We want safe streets everywhere!
The next step-take the TPB’s policy seriously and adopt or strengthen Complete Streets policies at the local level!
