CDA First In Idaho To Adopt Complete Streets Policy

Coeur d'Alene is featured in this month's 'National Complete Streets Coalition' newsletter as being the first in Idaho to adopt the Complete Streets policy.

At the May 5th City Council meeting, the Coeur d'Alene City Council adopted a complete streets policy to build road networks that are safer, more livable, and welcoming to everyone.

From the Coalitions e-newsletter: “The adopted policy addresses streets, bridges, and public transportation stops in the community, with specific policies for rural areas. The City's Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee aimed to have a long-term planning tool to facilitate accessibility for bicyclists and those with disabilities, as well as general multi-modalism. Councilman Goodlander commented that the policy is an opportunity for the city to move into the future, when cars are not the only way to travel.”
