Complete Streets

Complete Streets is an initiative taking place in progressive communities all over the country including right here in Fort Myers and Lee County. Its goal is to retrofit and design streets that are safe, comfortable and accessible to users of all ages and abilities - pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists.  Streets that are not complete tend to focus only on motorized vehicles.  Creating a road network that takes all users into consideration supports a safer, healthier, more inviting and economically viable community for our residents and visitors to enjoy. Complete Streets also helps to protect and preserve our natural resources by reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, adding to the sustainability of the area.
