North Lauderdale explores complete-streets concept


North Lauderdale has joined a growing list of cities that have realized that a right of way should be designed for more than just vehicular traffic.

At a recent workshop, city officials, staff and representatives of the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) discussed the feasibility of incorporating various elements of “complete streets” in some of the city’s roadways. A complete street is one that is designed and built for all modes of transportation; the goal is to make car drivers share the road with pedestrians and bikers.

Complete Streets Toolkit


GO TO 2040 recognizes the need for a modern, efficient transportation system to support the growth, diversity, and prosperity of the region.  To help achieve this, the plan recommends policies, actions, and investments to improve conditions for bicycling, walking, and the use of public transportation, including a Complete Streets approach to planning and designing local transportation systems.  Complete Streets is a transportation policy and design approach that requires streets to be planned, designed, operated, and maintained to enable safe, convenient, and comfortable travel and access for all anticipated roadway users, regardless of their age, abilities, or mode of travel.
