Miami and St. Paul adopt Complete Streets

Miami, Florida, and St. Paul, Minnesota, decided in March to adopt Complete Streets policies. Enactment of Complete Streets policies, which aim to make the transportation system work for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders as well as for motorists, accelerated last year, says Barbara McCann, executive director of the National Complete Streets Coalition. Twenty Complete Streets policies, including a state law in California, won approval in 2009. In all, more than 85 communities now have such policies.
