Do you support the concept of Complete Streets in Baltimore City? A Complete Streets Policy is one that requires all new road construction and reconstruction (of existing roads) projects to be designed and executed to enable safe access for ALL users including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages, incomes, abilities, and disabilities. Indeed, the needs of all users must be routinely considered at the very beginning of the planning project.
Residents without cars rely on public transportation, biking, walking, and ride sharing. The bulk of transportation funding, however, is currently spent on designing and building “car-efficient” streets that are less than safe for walkers and bikers. Walking and biking are outstanding remedies for physical inactivity and obesity, but for so many City residents, there is no safe place in which to walk and ride bikes.
