The complete package

If we're all paying taxes to fund the city's infrastructure, it only makes sense that the arteries connecting our neighborhoods be designed with all users in mind. A coalition of people pushing a "Complete Streets" ordinance argue we would enjoy economic, health and safety benefits if the city's roads were designed to prioritize pedestrians, cyclists and public transportation users along with private vehicles. Much like the Office of Sustainability helps officials incorporate green concepts into city operations, the proposed ordinance would institutionalize a more holistic approach to our roadways. Think the idea has merit? Get connected with the campaign, sign an online petition and lobby your city councilor.
