What are Complete Streets?

Complete Streets is a nationally recognized term referring to streets and sidewalks that are designed, operated and maintained to enable safe and convenient access and travel for all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and people of all ages and abilities, as well as freight and motor vehicle drivers. 

The Palm Beach MPO aims to achieve a safe and convenient transportation network by implementing Complete Streets within the context of our county’s diverse communities. The Palm Beach MPO seeks to promote Complete Streets by prioritizing the funding of Complete Streets infrastructure projects, providing educational opportunities, and encouraging local jurisdictions to adopt and implement local Complete Streets policies.

Complete Streets Working Group

A Complete Streets ad hoc working group was formed to assist in the development of local Complete Streets Design Guidelines. The group also shared information about Complete Streets project opportunities, implementation successes, challenges and lessons learned.

For more information on the MPO's efforts to promote Complete Streets, contact Valerie Neilson at 561.478.5743 or VNeilson@PalmBeachMPO.org

FDOT Complete Streets

Following its adoption of a Complete Streets Policy in Sep. 2014, the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT) released its Complete Streets Implementation Plan in December 2015. FDOT's policy and guidance provide additional tools for state and local agencies to design roads that are safer for users of all ages and abilities including pedestrians and bicyclists in addition to motorists. In addition to safety, complete street designs will promote quality of life, enhance property values, encourage physical activity and reduce negative environmental impacts.
