Complete Streets: Designing roads for all users

USA Today has a nice article explaining Complete Streets, a transportation design philosophy considering the needs of pedestrians, bike riders, seniors, the disabled and mass transit when cities plan new roads or reconfigure existing ones. I've seen the difference that "Complete Streets" can make in the livability of a community and I love it.

I sat in on discussions with the folks from Complete Streets, when I was in DC for the National Bike Summit. Very good ideas and I really look forward to supporting their work.
