Phoenix Approves Complete Streets Ordinance
On June 24, the Phoenix City Council "adopted Phoenix's first 'complete streets' ordinance, a set of broad guiding principles to promote street designs that are safe and welcoming to all users," reports Dustin Gardiner.
"But Tuesday's vote was just the start of what's likely to be a challenging process. The council also created a citizens' advisory board, which will help develop more detailed guidelines for how new streets will be built."
In related news, a Phoenix City Council committee tabled consideration of the city's Bicycle Master Plan, according to Nick Blumberg in a separate report.
