COMPLETE STREETS POLICY PROGRESS
Lee County Puts Its Resolution into Action
On November 1, Lee County, Florida County Commissioners heard the first annual report on implementation of last year’s Complete Streets resolution. The County has created an inter-departmental Complete Streets Team and action plan and timeline to ensure the intent of the resolution is realized. Among the steps identified are modifications to transportation planning and budgeting, establishment of an exceptions process, and incorporation of Complete Streets principles into existing plans and codes. Notably, the Department of Health is identified as a key partner in helping to establish new measures on transportation impact on health and improve data collected from bicycle and pedestrian crashes.
