The Complete Streets Policy was approved by City Council on May 22, 2013
The policy and accompanying guidelines encourage a holistic approach to roadway design in order to develop a network of roadways that are safe, attractive, comfortable and welcoming to all users. Designing New Neighbourhoods, Edmonton’s Future Residential Communities Policy was approved at the same time. The guidelines for this policy will influence the physical structure and layout of our new neighbourhoods.
Designing New Neighbourhoods and Complete Streets Policies
The Complete Streets Guidelines and an accompanying policy were recommended to City Council by the Executive Committee.
In 2012 and 2013 the public was engaged through online discussions which led into the creation of the Complete Streets Principles and the Complete Streets Guidelines. In February 2013, the project team held three public meetings to give Edmontonians an opportunity to provide input on the Draft Complete Streets Guidelines. The meetings were held in collaboration with another City of Edmonton project: Designing New Neighbourhoods.
