Tonight is the big night for the complete streets movement at the Spokane City Council meeting. Complete streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders are all considered under a complete streets policy. Here’s more information on the movement from the National Complete Streets Coalition.
Spokane City Council member Jon Snyder proposed a complete streets policy for Spokane and the Council will vote on it tonight. Here’s a piece from today’s Spokesman-Review where Councilman Snyder does an eloquent job of explaining complete streets and why it’s a good idea for Spokane.
