Last Tuesday, the Edmonds City Council unanimously approved a Complete Streets ordinance which pledges that the city will plan, design, and implement transportation projects accommodating pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders. However, the ordinance included many exceptions. The Complete Streets guidelines will not be enforced in cases where there is no identified need for them or the cost is determined to be disproportionate to "currents need or probable future uses."
TCC testified in favor of the ordinance with suggestions to strengthen it down the road by removing some of the exceptions. It is great to see more and more cities adopting complete streets across Washington State!
