|Mission||Bringing together representatives from all local agencies, involved in the conception, design, approval, implementation and enforcement, of our shared streets to transform and unify our current thinking, and approach, and make a plan.|
Excerpt from NY State Senator Fuschillo, Jr. (Complete Streets law author):
Under the new law, all state, county, and local transportation agencies will be required to consider complete streets design principles on all future projects which receive both federal and state funding. Complete streets design principles are roadway design features that accommodate and facilitate safe travel by pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists of all ages and abilities. These features include sidewalks, paved shoulders suitable for use by bicyclists, bicycle lanes, share the road signage, crosswalks, pedestrian control signalization, bus pull outs, curb cuts, raised crosswalks, ramps and traffic calming measures designed to allow pedestrian and motor traffic to easily coexist.
As a volunteer, it took three years for me to understand the issues and put them down in writing, with corroborating photos.
If you live in a town or city with these issues and would like to begin this conversation where you live, start a facebook page called "Shared Access, your city name" and either copy and paste what you like from our FB page or email me and I can send you the info as a Jpg attachment.
