Benefits of a Complete Street

A complete street is a street where multiple modes of transportation (bicycles, transit, cars, pedestrians, etc.) are accommodated.

The development of complete streets can create a variety of different benefits and opportunities for communities, such as:

  • Increased investment into local businesses
  • Improved community health through new opportunities for physical activity
  • A better sense of community
  • Increased property values
  • Universally accessibility and more equitable spaces for public participation
  • Sharing culture (public art, monuments, history, music)
  • A reduction in vehicle traffic and carbon emissions
