City of St. Petersburg's Complete Streets Implementation Plan Adopted by City Council
ST. PETERSBURG, FL – This week, the final draft of the Complete Streets Implementation Plan was adopted by City Council.
Said Mayor Kriseman: “Today is an important day for the future of transportation in our city. With the passage of our Complete Streets Implementation Plan, we will continue to make our streets safer for bicyclists, pedestrians, and yes, even drivers. This plan has wide-ranging support across our city and is bolstered by national data showing that Complete Streets equal safe streets. My thanks to a majority of the St. Petersburg City Council for their support of this plan and for their understanding that in order to build a complete city we need complete streets.”
The guiding principles and underlying goals of Complete Streets is that streets are planned, designed, operated, and maintained so that people of all ages and physical and economic abilities can safely and comfortably move around the city street network and provides the right accommodation for the land use context.
The plan will serve as a vision and blueprint for how St. Petersburg’s streets should be designed and function over the next 20+ years. The Plan will be updated every five years based on the assessment of projects implemented, changing conditions, and additional public engagement.
Recently completed projects under the Complete Streets umbrella include resurfacing and reconfiguration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street and bike improvements along the 30th Ave. corridor.
