How Does the RFATS Region Become More Walk & Bicycle Friendly?
The Plan will identify opportunities for creating a connected network of "complete streeets." The term "complete streets" refers to corridors that adequately provide for all roadway users, including pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists, and motorists. A connected network of "complete streets" allows for residents of the RFATS region to make daily, individual transportation choices, rather than relying on a one size fits all approach to mobility.
Planning for multi-modal streets presents a tremendous opportunity for the RFATS region.. Developing a connected network of complete streets fosters economic development, reduces vehicular emissions, improves public health and quality of life, connects residents to jobs, retail, and recreation opportunities, and supports “aging in place” as a viable opportunity.
