Montgomery County’s Proposed Complete Streets Policy: An Informational Overview
DATE: Wednesday, June 26, 2019
TIME: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The Montgomery County Planning Commission (MCPC) and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be offering a free webinar to introduce interested municipal officials, design professionals, and citizens to Montgomery County’s proposed Complete Streets policy initiative and to discuss how it may affect local roadway design in communities. MCPC, working with a host of public, non-profit, and industry leaders, is developing a Complete Streets policy for county-owned roads, bridges, and facilities. The policy—one of the first of its kind for a county government in Pennsylvania—will direct the county to incorporate Complete Streets principles into its own projects as well as advocate for them when working with partner agencies on their projects, whether public or private.
Complete Streets are streets designed for everyone. They take into account all ages of abilities and provide safe use for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders. The webinar will focus on the elements that will be included in the policy and how the policy will benefit communities. Join us for this interesting topic! An opportunity to comment on the draft policy will be available following the webinar at www.montcopa.org/
