Complete Streets are flexible and take into account their surrounding land use regulations and related transportation network connections. Establishing Complete Streets will enable the City of St. Petersburg to further achieve its status as a city of opportunity where the sun shines on all who come to live, work and play.

The policy outlines the approach and steps the City will pursue to achieve a network of Complete Streets in St. Petersburg, including the creation of a Complete Streets Implementation Plan.
Complete Streets City Council Resolution 2105-540
Complete Streets facilities improvements include on-street bicycle lanes, shared-use paths, sidewalks, reduced number of lanes and lane widths, transit, and mixed land uses. It is important to note that not every facility is needed on each corridor to make it a Complete Street. The City of St. Petersburg is fortunate in that there was foresight in the planning of the street network, which includes a grid of streets that provide transportation options and alternatives. The grid network also allows for the implementation of a connected Complete Streets network that includes enhancements for all modes of travel.
