We’ve been looking forward to this manual. Local advisory groups and elected officials should use it for policy and infrastructure decisions in their wards.
From the Active Transportation Alliance blog post:
Active Transportation Alliance is proud to announce the publication of our new design manual, Complete Streets, Complete Networks. The manual is a visually compelling introduction to the principles of Complete Streets roadway design and an elegant collection of resources for planners.
Over two years in the making, the Complete Streets, Complete Networks manual was conceived as a catalyst for new professional practices in urban design. It serves as a comprehensive list of best practices, guidelines, and project delivery processes. But it goes beyond traditional roadway design guidance to include a policy framework that city planners designers and decision makers can follow to create great places to bike, walk and use transit.
Download it here and discuss it below.
