We need a more comprehensive approach to the redevelopment of streets. We need to develop more emphasis on walking, biking, public transit, community and local commerce.
If we don't start becoming more intentional about limiting the growing presence of automobiles on our streets, we'll see more traffic congestion, wider roads, more pollution and residents with little-to-no connection with the neighborhood in which they live.
If we want a stronger local economy, healthier residents, more environmental sustainability, safer streets, stronger communities and less potholes, complete streets is the way to go.
