Two more Florida communities join Lee County in adopting Complete Streets policies

It's exciting to see that two more Florida communities have adopted Complete Streets Resolutions. Below are the reports from this week's National Complete Streets Coalition newsletter:

Cocoa, FL
: Looking to provide residents with cleaner air, reduced congestion, and healthier lifestyle options, the City Council adopted a Complete Streets resolution on June 14. Cocoa is one of many jurisdictions in Brevard County to have stepped up in favor of Complete Streets in the past few months.

Orange City, FL: Having attracted its share of big retailers – and their big parking lots – Orange City's new Complete Streets resolution is part of the community's efforts to emphasize a sustainable downtown core that allows for multiple transportation options. Supported by Mayor Harley Strickland, the policy was adopted by City Council on June 14. (Daytona Beach News-Journal)

There are now ELEVEN communities in Florida with Complete Streets policies. How about doubling that number in the next couple of years?!
