What are your comments on BikeWalkLee's recommendations to make streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists?

To make Lee County's streets safer for all users, our ped safety report laid out specific actions that we urge Lee County officials,agencies, and others in the community to consider in five broad areas:

1. Ensure that Lee's streets take into account all users
2. Fix problem areas
3. Focus on public education for all road-user groups
4. Enhance enforcement of existing laws
5. Put safe walking and biking into a broader context

As we move forward to advocate action on these suggestions, BikeWalkLee would like to get input from our network of supporters. Over the next week, I'll be posting the action items in each broad area and invite your comments and suggestions.

Today's post focuses on:

1. Ensure that Lee's streets take into account all users

1) Support Lee County commission's Nov. 10 vote to adopt a "Complete Streets" resolution. [adopted by BoCC on 11/10. The focus now on county implementation]
2) Encourage intergovernmental coordination in street design.
3) Promote community designs that emphasize alternative transportation options.
4) Incorporate Complete Streets principles into road designs and upgrades.

What are your comments/suggestions? Stay tuned for the next in the series of recommendations.
