What will the Complete Streets bill mean to us?

Original post made by Donald, another community, on Nov 18, 2008

In September the Governor signed AB1358, the "Complete Streets" bill sponsored by Assemblyperson Leno. To quote a summary from the VTA "This bill requires, commencing January 1, 2011, that the legislative body of a city or county, upon any substantive revision of the circulation element of the general plan, modify the circulation element to plan for a balanced, multimodal transportation network that meets the needs of all users of streets, roads, and highways, defined to include motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, children, persons with disabilities, seniors, movers of commercial goods, and users of public transportation, in a manner that is suitable to the rural, suburban, or urban context of the general plan."
