A new website, coalition and petition
We are excited to announce the Michigan Complete Streets Coalition, a new partnership between the Michigan Environmental Council and the League of Michigan Bicyclists.
Please visit our new website at www.michigancompletestreets.org.
This new website is will be home base for all things Complete Streets across the state. While you are there, please take a moment to sign the Michigan Complete Streets petition to show your support for roadways that are built to move people - not just cars.
The new site is in its infancy, but we are adding resources and news on a regular basis.
In addition to signing the petition, make sure to check out the "Take Action" section of the site to learn more about our Complete Streets Photo Sharing Project, writing a letter to the editor, and info on contacting your legislator on this important issue. On the new website you can also sign up for daily digest emails of the latest Michigan Complete Streets news and even follow Michigan Complete Streets (WalkBikeRollMI) on Twitter.
After you sign the petition, please bookmark the site and don't forget to tell your friends about it!
Complete Streets are roadways built for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, people with disabilities and transit users of all ages and abilities. Elements of Complete Streets include bike lanes, sidewalks, crosswalks, wide shoulders, transit shelters, ADA compliant curb cuts, crosswalk timers and push buttons, landscaping and other traffic calming measures, etc.
An incomplete street is just what it sounds like; a street that does not accommodate multimodal travel. Incomplete streets are designed specifically for automobile traffic and lack the features mentioned above.
