'Complete Streets' Movement Gaining Momentum

The new slogan for bicyclists and pedestrians across America is gaining attention, as well as weight, from a number of municipalities.

"In the four years since the program was approved by the advocacy group American Bikes, 'Complete Streets' has been endorsed or promoted by CNU, AARP, the American Planning Association, the Active Living by Design Program and others...The emphasis varies from one locale to another, but the central goal, as defined by Barbara Gray and Grace Crunican of the Seattle Department of Transportation, is 'policies and actions aimed at producing streets that are safe, accessible, and convenient for all users.'"
