Overview

The Florida Department of Transportation developed a Complete Streets Handbook and updated the Florida Design Manual as a tool to implement the Department's Complete Street Policy adopted in 2014.  The handbook was completed in July 2017.  AICP members will be provided a brief overview of the Complete Streets Handbook and be introduced to the cooperative process necessary for effecting Complete Streets.  Members will explore the Context Classifications, the heart of Complete Streets.  The classifications are based on the transect system with a range from urban to rural land uses.  The classifications help to determine design criteria on State Roads, including appropriate design speed. Disscussion will include looking at the form of development to determine appropriate context classifications.  The content of the educational program will include details of the Handbook and discussion of how to move to the operational/implementation phase. 

The speaker is DeWayne Carver, AICP, who is the Florida Department of Transportation's Complete Streets Program Manager.  Mr. Carver has prior experience with walkable thoroughfare design, form-based coding, and city and regional planning.  He holds a Master of Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
