The City has hired the RBA Group to plan the complete streets redesign of Washington Street. The City adopted a Complete Streets policy in 2010. Complete Streets are roadways that enable safe and convenient access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, children, people with disabilities, seniors, movers of commercial goods, and users of public transportation. Complete Streets stimulate active, healthy behavior, reduce automotive traffic and pollution, encourage more foot traffic to businesses, and enhance interaction with the shared space we all know as the street.
“Washington Street is already nationally recognized as a ‘Great Street,’ but we know it can be improved,” added Mayor Zimmer. “Whether it’s safer pedestrian crossings, green stormwater management, or smart technologies to improve parking and public transit, we want to hear the community’s vision and priorities for making Washington Street an even greater street.”For full details, view this message on the web.
