Planners to hold webinar to introduce county ‘Complete Streets’ policy


The Montgomery County Planning Commission (MCPC) and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be offering a free webinar to introduce interested municipal officials, design professionals and citizens to Montgomery County’s proposed Complete Streets policy initiative and to discuss how it may affect local roadway design in communities. Complete Streets are streets designed for everyone. They take into account all ages and abilities, and provide safe use for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. MCPC, working with a host of public, nonprofit and industry leaders, is developing a complete streets policy for county-owned roads, bridges and facilities. The policy — one of the first of its kind for a county government in Pennsylvania — will direct the county to incorporate Complete Streets principles into its own projects as well as advocate for them when working with partner agencies on their projects, whether public or private. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26, at 1 p.m. Click here to register.
