Miami-Dade County Adopts Complete Streets Design Guidelines

MIAMI (July 05, 2017)

On June 6, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners adopted a resolution establishing County policy that Miami-Dade County’s streets should be designed in accordance with the Complete Streets Design Guidelines.

The adoption and implementation of the Complete Streets Design Guidelines -- as recommended by Neat Streets Miami on February 21, 2017 -- will empower engineers and planners to design, construct and operate roads in a way that balances all modes of transportation within a context-sensitive approach that takes street typology and land use types into consideration when planning street enhancements.

The Guidelines were created through a grant funded by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade, and are a product of the Safer People, Safer Streets Local Action Plan intended specifically for use by the County and its 34 municipalities.
