TCAT launches Complete Streets for Canada Policy and Design Hub
On July 5, 2012 TCAT launched the Complete Streets for Canada Policy and Design Hub
made possible by generous funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation
. A Complete Streets policy ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently design and operate the entire street network for road users of all ages and abilities, including pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers.
The Complete Streets for Canada Policy and Design Hub will act as the ‘go to’ for information on the growing Complete Streets movement in Canada, with a particular initial focus on Ontario communities. The website provides case studies, policy expertise, news, and the latest research, including TCAT’s recently completed Complete Streets Gap Analysis
report and Complete Streets by Design
resource. The goal of the website is to facilitate implementation of Complete Streets and increase awareness, knowledge, and community involvement in building Complete Streets across Canada.
To build and grow this dynamic resource, TCAT encourages professionals, decision-makers and community members from across Canada to contact Ryan Anders Whitney, TCAT’s Complete Streets Researcher and Project Manager, to share Complete Streets news from your community.
