Berkeley Complete Streets Policy
On December 11, 2012, Berkeley City Council adopted a Complete Streets Policy (Resolution 65,978-N.S.) to guide future street design and repair activities. “Complete Streets” describes a comprehensive, integrated transportation network with infrastructure and design that allows safe and convenient travel along and across streets for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, persons with disabilities, motorists, movers of commercial goods, users and operators of public transportation, emergency vehicles, seniors, children, youth, and families.
The City has begun work on a Complete Streets Policy Implementation Plan to establish design guidelines, staff procedures, a public consultation process, and a program monitoring and evaluation program. Adoption of the policy was required by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC).
