New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition

The New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition supports development of roadways that offer safe transportation options for all people.

About the Coalition

The New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition is a group of organizations, businesses, civic leaders, and everyday people who support improving our roadways and safe transportation options in order to enhance health, equity, sustainability, prosperity, and quality-of-life for the people of Greater New Orleans.

The current focus of the New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition is working with the City of New Orleans to update the current Complete Streets Policy to be equity-focused, data-driven, and publicly accountable. Read our letter to Mayor Cantrell with all the details on an updated Complete Streets Policy.

The New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition was instrumental in Connect The Crescent, a 3-month demonstration project of streets built to share and complete transportation networks. The Coalition is also supporting community engagement in the City’s Moving New Orleans Bikes planning process.

Members and supporters of the Complete Streets Coalition also support one another’s initiatives and events, meet regularly to discuss various opportunities and strategies for transportation improvements, and work to ensure strong community engagement in mobility decision-making.

New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition History

The New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition is a broad group of community organizations and businesses who came together in 2016 to build community support for safe and equitable mobility options for all people in New Orleans. The Coalition was born out of the former work of the Sustainable Transportation Action Committee (active from 2011 through 2015), and has been focused on working towards an updated City of New Orleans Complete Streets Policy that takes a data-driven, equity-focused, and transparent approach to reconstructing streets in a way that best accommodates all people, no matter how they travel – whether walking, biking, driving, taking transit, and/or using mobility-assistance devices.

The Coalition was instrumental in Mayor LaToya Cantrell’ s decision to include a Complete Streets policy update as a goal in her Forward Together transition plan. As an updated policy moves towards enactment and implementation, the New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition will be working to support implementation of Moving New Orleans: A Path Towards Equitable Transportation, Mayor Cantrell’s strategy for improving safety, equity, connectivity, and efficiency of transportation options in the City of New Orleans.

The New Orleans Complete Streets Coalition is committed to making sure our roadways provide safe transportation options for all, help us live with water, and create public spaces that promote a high quality-of-life.
