Fort Wayne/ Allen County
Workshop offered on Complete Streets
The city of Fort Wayne will be holding a Complete Streets Workshop on June 12.
Complete Streets are roadways designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, not just motorists. A complete streets policy ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently plan, design, operate, and maintain the entire roadway with all users in mind – including bicyclists, public transportation vehicles and riders, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.
Topics covered will include planning a Complete Streets campaign and designing and engineering Complete Streets. There will also be lunch provided. The workshop is from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Walb Student Union at IPFW. The workshop is free, but registration is required; register at www.surveymonkey.com/s/fortwaynecs. For questions, call 317-352-3804.
