More than 80 communities passed Complete Streets policies in 2013, and on February 18, Smart Growth America’s National Complete Streets Coalition will unveil which ones were the best.
Each year, the Coalition analyzes Complete Streets policies enacted in the past year. These laws, resolutions, executive orders, policies and planning and design documents encourage and provide safe access to destinations for everyone, regardless of age, ability, income, ethnicity or how they travel.
Join us for an online event to celebrate this year’s best policies and to hear how communities everywhere can create streets that are safer and more convenient for everyone who uses them.

Complete Streets policies—including laws, resolutions, executive orders, policies and planning and design documents—encourage and provide safe access to destinations for everyone, regardless of age, ability, income, ethnicity or how they travel. The Coalition evaluates policies based on 10 policy elements, including the policy’s vision, the project types included and next steps for implementation, among others. The 2012 rankings recognized Indianapolis, IN, as the top scoring policy in the nation that year.
We’ll announce this year’s top communities to our email subscribers early on February 18. Join our mailing list to be the first to know about the winners.
More than 600 jurisdictions at the local, regional, and state levels have now enacted Complete Streets policies. Join us on February 18 to celebrate the best policies of 2013 and safer, more convenient streets that work for everyone.
