Draft Complete Streets Policy Available for Review

The Draft Complete Streets Policy is now available for review here. The Complete Streets Policy is intended to provide for safe and convenient access to all parts of the City by respecting the needs, capabilities and limitations of all users of City rights-of-way, including but not limited to pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, motorists, emergency, freight and commercial vehicle operators. The Policy will align street design, reconstruction, and maintenance with 2025 Master Plan Street Types.

The City of Kalamazoo recognizes that all projects: new, maintenance, or reconstruction, are potential opportunities to apply Complete Streets design principles for the equity and safety of all users.  The City will, to the maximum extent practical, design, construct, maintain, and operate all streets to provide for a comprehensive and integrated street network of streets, trails, and right-of way - for people of all ages and abilities throughout the city.

A public meeting will be held in November to discuss the draft plan before it is presented to the Planning Commission later that month. It is expected the Complete Streets Policy will be presented to the City Commission for approval in December. More information about the Complete Streets Policy can be found on the Imagine Kalamazoo website at www.imaginekalamazoo.com
