The Complete Streets Idea Is Gaining Momentum

The basic idea is that streets are to move people, rather than designing streets to move cars.

Traverse City has used Complete Streets ideas for a small section of Woodmere Ave and there is the possibility of doing it on Eighth St and even Division.

Based on the success with Woodmere Ave and the examples in the following article I hope Traverse City pursues more smart transportation strategies like this.
