Virginia Beach Adopts Complete Streets Policy

Monday, December 01, 2014

The City of Virginia Beach has adopted a Complete Streets Policy, which originated from a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant administered by Smart Growth America. The grant funded a two-day Complete Streets workshop with the various city, state and regional stakeholders and the public. This workshop provided the impetus for a city staff committee to develop the policy. 

The purpose of the Complete Streets Policy is to improve the Virginia Beach transportation system by providing safe, attractive travel for all users through a system of connected transportation choices designed in harmony with adjacent land uses.  This policy will ensure that all users of roadways are considered with the design and construction of new roadways.
