Complete Streets as a planning and transportation design concept recognizes that the public right of way is used by citizens with an array of characteristics, abilities, and modes of travel. The design of that right of way needs to accommodate that variety of users. At the same time, context matters – not all rights of way are used in the same manner. It also requires that the development of new or improved rights of way include consideration and input by various elements of the public sphere and bureaucracy: engineers, planners, public services, safety, public transit, business and the public.
While many of us are familiar with the concept, how has the experience been in place? The workshop sponsored by the Akron Section of APA Ohio looks at local practice and its impact, and will provide attendees with tools to develop policies and practices appropriate to your own communities.
