2013 - Stephanie Landregan - Complete Streets: Can They Be More?
The Living Streets Manual will be reviewed and guidelines explored. "Living Streets" looks at ALL the functions a street should perform not just for automobiles. The multi-functions a street should be designed to perform include: as a natural system for stormwater, as a social environment for interaction and community, as a traffic conduit for pedestrians, bicycles and autos. Incorporating natural systems can improve both the function, maintenance and the health of the street and community.
