11/25/2018: "“Complete Streets” For San Juan County Proposed"
Dave Zeretzke of San Juan Island Trails sent out a notice that On Tuesday, November 27th at 9:15 at the San Juan County Council Meeting Room, the three San Juan County Council members will take public testimony about a proposed ordinance to adopt Complete Streets principles in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
According to Smart Growth America , “Smart growth means building streets that are safe for people walking, bicycling or using a wheelchair, as well as driving.”
Over 100 Washington State jurisdictions (all cities except for one county) have adopted some form of a Complete Streets ordinance, including Friday Harbor in 2017. Those jurisdictions qualify for potential Washington State Dept. of Transportation grants to help pay for road improvement costs.
