Complete Streets workshop focuses on the region

In May 2012, the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board adopted a Complete Streets policy. The policy required a regional workshop on Complete Streets implementation to aid local jurisdictions in adopting and implementing their own policies. The workshop is now scheduled for January 29th. Details are below, please plan to attend. This is a great opportunity to hear neighboring jurisdiction success stories and how barriers were addressed.

WHAT

A “complete street” safely and adequately accommodates motorized and nonmotorized users in a manner appropriate to the function and context of the facility.  Most of the jurisdictions in the Washington region either have or are developing policies requiring “Complete Streets”.

This workshop will focus on implementation of Complete Streets policies in the Washington region.  A panel of local and State government officials that have Complete Streets policies in place will discuss their experiences implementing those policies, with an emphasis on best practices and lessons learned.

WHO should attend?

This event is open to the public, but will be of special interest to consultants, designers, transportation planners, and maintenance staff, and others responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of streets.  Come hear what your peers are doing to accommodate non-motorized users as part of their “Complete Streets” policies.
