Complete Streets

MTC’s Complete Streets Checklist is intended for use on projects at their earliest conception or design phase so that any pedestrian or bicycle consideration can be included in the project budget. The county Congestion Management Agencies (CMAs) will ensure that project sponsors complete the checklist before projects are submitted to MTC. CMAs are required to make completed checklists available to their Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPACs) for review.
