Multimodal/Complete Streets Planning - the evolution

Multimodal planning is a key component of planning for the infrastructure. It also encompasses safety, policies, decision making and a design process that balances the needs of end users in each land-use context. Providing safe and convenient multimodal options including bicycle and pedestrian travel options and transit as part of multimodal planning can increase access to economic opportunity for traditionally underserved populations, including people with disabilities and low-income, minority, older, and limited-English-proficiency populations. Presenters discuss multimodal applications at varying scales from state plans to individual projects, define complete streets, and explain how complete streets planning can be applied through statewide plans and policies. MoKan case study will be used to demonstrate how complete streets are needed and applicable in rural and urban settings. The presentation includes an evolution of best practices and opportunities for complete streets.
