The Monterey Bay Area Complete Streets Program is a policy tool that helps local jurisdictions improve their transportation networks by making streets safe and accessible for everyone. Over the past decade, transportation planning and design has changed focus from the movement of motorized transportation to the movement of people and goods who travel by various modes of transportation.  Complete streets planning and design embodies this shift in thinking by considering the needs of all users in every roadway project.  The Monterey Bay Area Complete Streets Guidebook is a comprehensive resource designed to assist jurisdictions in developing complete streets projects.
