AARP Vermont partnered with Smart Growth America on Nov. 6 to host a Vermont-specific webinar on implementing complete streets principles in rural and small towns across the state. Attendees and officials from towns and villages across Vermont participated.
Complete Streets policies ensure that transportation agencies and municipalities routinely design and operate the right of ways to enable safe access for everyone on the road. Complete Streets guidelines make community and roadway planners think about how people can access the community without a car. The design considerations are meant to apply to new roads and those being redesigned or rebuilt.
