Spacing features TCAT’s Complete Streets Forum

Last week, SpacingToronto featured a story about TCAT’s Complete Street Forum. Hillary Best’s article, “Complete Streets: What they are and why we need them”, provides a great overview of the benefits of Complete Streets policies. Best’s coverage of the Forum zeros in on the health and economic benefits of reducing motor vehicle traffic. With quotes from Toronto’s own Medical Officer of Health who advocated for a shift to cycling and walking to improve personal health and air quality and the Clean Air Partnership’s Eva Ligeti who said that promoting biking and walking will contribute to local economies (see CAP’s Bloor Street studies here.) Best’s article delivers some of the Forum’s strongest messages.
