This informational session is an opportunity for citizens, advocates, and businesses to learn about “complete streets,” the national trend toward complete streets approaches, and the City’s new “complete streets” approach to street improvements. In December 2011 the City of New Orleans adopted a historical “complete streets” ordinance that will guide future decisions about how transportation investments are made in the City of New Orleans. Over the next few months, various City agencies will work together to implement a complete streets policy. The “complete streets” approach will better ensure that transportation improvements are planned, designed, and constructed to encourage multiple modes of transportation including walking, bicycling, driving, and transit.
Representatives from various City agencies will be participating in a one day workshop earlier the same day to plan future implementation of complete streets in New Orleans. Attendees at the evening session will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input at this early stage in the process. National experts on Complete Streets will also be on hand to answer questions.
