Complete Streets

Complete streets are streets that are planned, designed, operated, and maintained to enable safe access for all users, of all ages and abilities, including pedestrians, bicyclists, persons with disabilities, motorists, and transit users.

What’s Missing on Your Street? | PreventObesity.net

"The establishment of great policies like Complete Streets in Baton Rouge, the Village of Walthill, and the small town of Sodus, or in your town are opportunities to say wholeheartedly that no one who deems themselves a part of community should be left behind."

Complete Streets policies direct planners and transportation officials to consider the safety of all road users when implementing projects. Over time, this makes streets safer for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and vehicles. These policies can also help revitalize downtown areas of small towns through improvements in the visual appeal of streets, sidewalks, and green spaces. Complete Streets can help connect residents to the many beautiful parks and trails located in the Finger Lakes Region.

CCE Wayne will be working with the Lyons, Clyde-Savannah, Waterloo, Romulus, and South Seneca school districts, which include the towns of Lyons, Galen, Savannah, Waterloo, Junius, Romulus, Fayette, Varick, Ovid, Covert, and Lodi. If you are a resident interested in learning more about incorporating a Complete Streets policy or project in your town, contact the Community Outreach Coordinator.
