Complete Streets Policy
Complete Streets are identified as an action item in Shaping Our Future: City of Moncton Sustainability Plan (2011).
PLANMONCTON: The City of Moncton Municipal Plan (2012), commits to implementing "Complete Streets" and identifies a number of benefits of adopting this approach.
- “The function and design of our city’s corridors have had a tremendous influence on the design of properties along them, which for the most part have focused on the needs of the automobile. The vision is about transforming some of our city’s main corridors to better meet the needs of walkers, cyclists, and transit users in the future. This is not to say that such streets will not also cater to vehicle drivers – the emphasis of the strategy is to make our streets work for everyone. Developing attractive, complete streets is an essential part of creating a healthier, more vibrant and sustainable city," (p.11)
The City of Moncton has also come together with the City of Dieppe and the Town of Riverview to develop Destination 2040, a Regional Sustainable Transportation Master Plan (2015). The plan recommends developing Complete Streets as an action to take towards achieving the region's sustainable transportation goals. A number of corridors identified for Complete Street treatments are examined and prioritized, and a Complete Streets Design Elements Toolbox is provided. The technical report runs over 900 pages long and includes a Complete Streets Design Elements Toolbox; the Executive Summary can be downloaded below.
