TCAT releases new report: Complete Streets Gap Analysis
On April 23, 2012 at the Complete Streets Forum, TCAT released a new report titled Complete Streets Gap Analysis: Opportunities and Barriers in Ontario. Produced, with funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the report provides an analysis of the potential for Complete Streets in 17 of Ontario’s largest municipalities.
The report includes an analysis of Official Plans throughout Ontario, the results of a survey that profile opportunities and barriers to implementation of Complete Streets according to municipal engineers, planners, and advocates, and case studies from Thunder Bay, Waterloo, and Calgary that demonstrate how Canadian municipalities are progressing towards Complete Streets, while highlighting the importance of community context in CS policy.
The research reveals that Complete Streets policies are becoming increasingly popular throughout municipalities in Ontario.
