|For Immediate Release|
July 28, 2009
Rockville, Md., July 28, 2009 - Rockville's Mayor and Council approved at their meeting Monday night a comprehensive Complete Streets Policy that requires City streets are routinely designed, operated, and upgraded to enable safe access for all users - pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and motorists.
The policy, initially discussed by the Mayor and Council in October 2008, coordinates streets, bicycle lanes and paths, and sidewalks and was developed with community input at meetings of the Traffic and Transportation Commission and Rockville Bicycle Advisory Committee and during a public comment period.
Rockville is one of the first cities of its size to implement a comprehensive complete streets policy in support of the Mayor and Council Vision to provide residents with a quality built environment.
