Alameda County Complete Streets Workshop

From AlamedaCTC:

We will introduce the concept of complete streets (streets built for all users); summarize what is happening with complete streets from the national to local levels, and review complete streets requirements at the state, regional, and county level, including Alameda CTC’s own new requirements in the Master Funding Agreements and in the proposed Countywide Transportation Plan and Transportation Expenditure Plan.

This is the first step in the development of resources and workshops to help local agencies develop and implement Complete Streets policies, which we’ll share more about at the event, plus we w ant to hear from you about what resources you need, and what obstacles stand in the way to building complete streets. Please join us!

RSVP: Please RSVP to Angie Ayers,, so we can plan to have enough seats for all.

QUESTIONS: Contact Rochelle Wheeler, Countywide Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator,

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  Anyone who will be involved in complete streets policy development and implementation. This includes local jurisdiction and transit agency staff working in engineering, public works, planning, and bike/ped programs.  Others with interest are encouraged to attend, as well.
