In the GGH Region, and throughout Canada, we are now seeing Complete Streets (i.e., streets that are designed for all ages, abilities, and modes of travel) moving from concept to reality within a planning context that enables such developments. This project built on our previous research, and produced a ready-to-use resource that features evidence of nine recent Complete Street transformations across the GGH. The book documents road-design interventions, planning processes, before-after illustrations, and other information relating to these street transformations. Key outcomes of these projects, measured in terms of four key performance indicators were documented using available data. A broad observation of the nine Complete Streets examples makes the case that Complete Street transformations are likely to achieve the key goals,
although more work can be done to ensure Complete Streets and other municipal infrastructure projects are evaluated more systematically and using comparable measures. The outcome of this project (i.e., the resource book) improves municipal capacity relating to active and sustainable transportation planning, in line with the visions set out in the Growth Plan for the GGH Region.
