Complete Streets means that our streets are planned to be safe and accessible for pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists, and drivers—all users, regardless of age or ability.

Goals of the Coalition:

1. Work to foster ongoing statewide implementation of Complete Streets processes across all jurisdictions.

2. Partner with the Minnesota Department of Transportation to fully implement the 2010 state Complete Streets law.

Complete streets don't all look the same. See more examples on the National Complete Streets Coalition website.
