'Complete' street coming to a city near you


Dakota Dunes, S. D. (KTIV) - Many other cities in the Tri-State region have adopted a resolution adding some form of the Complete Streets Act of 2009, Senator Tom Harkin has introduced to the U-S Senate and on Thursday at the Siouxland Interstate Metropolitan Planning Council, staff presented a Complete Streets Resolution for members to review.

The Complete Streets concept acknowledges that there are more than people that operate cars that use the roads and it incorporates pedestrian and bicyclist by permanantly marking the streets or placing signage up.

Officials with SIMPCO say because of the high prices of gas and the "Green" movement, people are wanting to incorporate all modes of transportation.

Board members will vote on the Complete Streets Resolution at the next SIMPCO meeting.
