On March 29, 2012 , TCAT released Complete Streets by Design: Toronto streets redesigned for all ages and abilities at the University of Toronto (launch photos here). The report demonstrates how six Toronto streets could look and feel after a Complete Streets redesign.
By definition, there is no single way to “complete a street.” The design approach was inspired by Toronto precedents, maintained existing roadway widths and curbs, and was cost-effective. While public input influenced the final product, there are many alternative designs that would also accommodate road users of all ages and abilities. With funding from the Toronto Community Foundation, this tool is intended generate conversation about Complete Streets in Toronto and beyond.
TCAT printed 500 copies of the resource that we will mail out for a small fee and it is also now available online.
