Broward County Mayor letter to BikeWalkLee about complete streets collaboration between counties

In March, the Broward County Commission approved its Complete Streets Design Manual
that had been in the works for a year. (See: Broward County Commission Unanimously Approves Complete Streets - Urban Health Solutions and Urban  BikeWalkLee sent a congratulations note last month to the Broward team and today got a nice note from the Broward County Mayor that I wanted to share with our network.

Hi Darla,

I hope this email finds you doing well. It was great to see you at the ISC workshop in November. I am equally excited that the Complete Streets Design was passed by our Board of County Commissioners, and that we were able to pass Lee County’s model. It has been such a help to have Lee County’s Complete Streets model to use as a guide. We were grateful to have Andy and Tessa come to speak at our County Workshop and since then we have had a great response from our cities.

I noticed on the BikeWalkLee blog that you are doing a great job integrating existing work into future Complete Street models. What a big step forward for future planning. 

It has been a great help to have your support throughout this process. Thank you for getting in touch with me and thank you for your leadership on such an innovative program.  I look forward to keeping in touch.
