About the Event

Communities in Minnesota and across the country are organizing around complete streets as a new way of advancing multimodal transportation planning. This presentation highlighted the results of research that examined critical factors that can help move communities from an interest in complete streets to getting projects on the ground.  

Based on insights from case communities in Minnesota and across the U.S., the presentation reviewed practical tools for planning, design, analysis, funding, institutional change, and community engagement. It also explored approaches to advancing complete streets through changes in local plans, policies, and implementation processes.
