Citizens are invited to learn about Complete Streets concepts at a public meeting beginning at 2:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 8 in the City Council Chambers, County-City Building, 555 South 10th Street.
Complete Streets programs make sure that streets and roads work for drivers, transit users, pedestrians, and bicyclists, as well as for older people, children, and people with disabilities. A core philosophy of the Complete Streets program is that pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities should be able to safely travel along and across any street.
An overview presentation by Michael Moule, P.E., P.T.O.E. will provide background on the benefits of Complete Streets, dispel myths, explain how existing streets can easily be retrofitted into Complete Streets, and detail how a Complete Streets policy can even save money.
A general discussion with questions and answers will follow the presentation. Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning staff will also be available.
Free parking vouchers will be given to attendees who park in the public parking garage north of the County-City Building.
