Popular Complete Streets Policy Killed by City Council

According to Kari Petrie, a highly popular Complete Streets measure in St. Cloud, Minnesota couldn't get a majority of votes from the City Council.

Petrie writes that "Dozens attended the public hearing Monday, and almost all of the more than 20 speakers spoke in support of the policy. Supporters said the policy will help make it easier for all users to get around the city."

Councilmember George Hontos "...called the policy redundant and cited four city documents that discuss transportation and safety for users."

The 3 dissenting councilmembers were concerned about the possible costs of such a measure, and didn't want to add "...another layer of requirements and makes it harder to do business in St. Cloud."
