Complete Street series details
The latest initiative of Somerville by Design is the Complete Street series. To achieve the SomerVision Comprehensive Plan goals, and to compliment the Green Line station area plans were put into action by the recent Somerville by Design meetings. The focus will now on our streets.
Complete Streets design includes both an emphasis on encouraging sustainable modes like walking and biking as well as increased safety and efficiency for all users. The series will feature livable transportation expert Ian Lockwood who will discuss how complete streets work and why they are a vital to Somerville’s future as a great place to live, work, play and raise a family.
Attendees will have an opportunity to explore options and provide input, which will range from spot improvements to larger scale network visioning.
