The Phoenix City Council will vote in December on a “complete streets” policy that would encourage walking, bicycling and transit use while promoting safe operations for all users. New roads and reconstruction would feature bike lanes, benches for bus riders, street lamps, curb cuts for wheelchairs and strollers, and other amenities.

The city Street Transportation Department proposed the ordinance and is seeking public comment. AARP Arizona supports the proposal.

To read the plan, go to phoenix.gov/streets. To submit comments, email matthew.heil@phoenix.gov or write to Complete Streets, Phoenix Street Transportation Department, Fifth Floor, 200 W. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ 85003.
