Strathcona County is a specialized municipality near Edmonton, designated to accommodate the specific needs of an area that includes both urban and rural territory.
The Strathcona County Integrated Transportation Master Plan includes section 9.3.6 which outlines methods for improving street design approaches. This section also includes creating Complete Streets as an action item. It includes the definition and direction around future roadway designs and upgrades.
“Complete Streets provide space for all users, including cyclists and pedestrians of all ages and mobility levels, transit users, and motorists. Developing and adopting a Complete Streets policy will ensure the County transportation planners and engineers consider the needs of all roadway users, not just motorists, when designing and upgrading roadways. A Complete Streets policy gives the same priority and importance to active transportation and public transit as to the automobile mode, and begins to change thinking about the purpose of roadways.”
The full plan is available through Strathcona County.
