Implementing Your Policy

After your community has adopted a Complete Streets policy, it is important to determine how you will implement the policy moving forward.

Here are a few suggested steps for implementing your policy:

  1. Coordinate agencies and departments, including public works/maintenance, planning and engineering, police, etc.
  2. Institute a project review checklist.
  3. Provide training to municipal employees, including engineers, public works, planning and zoning officials.
  4. Establish performance standards with measurable outcomes.
  5. Address the specific needs of bicyclists and pedestrians on local roadways.
  6. Direct the use of the latest and best design and engineering standards, including:
    • Paving shoulders and/or narrowing travel lanes to provide striped shoulders on roads for bicycle, pedestrian, farm equipment, emergency and police use;
    • Avoiding placement of rumble strips on shoulders and in centerlines that could interfere with the safe operation of bicycles.
  7. Anticipate future bicycle, pedestrian and transit demand, even on bridges and in and around train stations.
  8. Capital improvements that expand the opportunities for safe roadway use by all users.
