NJ Complete Streets Policy Compilation

A Complete Streets policy formalizes a community’s intent to plan, design, operate, and maintain streets that are safe for all users of all ages and abilities. These are policies that direct decision-making to consistently fund, plan for, design, construct, and reconstruct streets to accommodate all anticipated users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, motorists, and freight vehicles. Complete Streets policies are most often found in either a resolution or ordinance, but they can appear in executive orders, department or board policies, plans, design guidelines, and more. 

Adopting Complete Streets policies improve transportation options, access to opportunities, safety, physical health, environmental quality, and community and economic vitality. We need Complete Streets policies to ensure that all users of the roadway are routinely considered in transportation projects and provided with safe, convenient, affordable, and equitable transportation options. Without the adoption of a Complete Streets policy, there is no guarantee that current and future projects will be planned and designed for all users of the road.
