Local residents are invited to join one of two virtual open houses to discuss the draft comprehensive street design manual.

Complete streets are designed to be safe for all users: people who walk, cycle, take transit or drive, and people of varying ages and mobility levels. They also consider other uses such as sidewalk cafes, street furniture, trees, utilities and stormwater management.

The City of Greater Sudbury is developing a manual that will provide a cohesive set of guidelines and tools to inform the design, implementation, maintenance and monitoring of complete streets across the city. This manual will encourage designs that better balance considerations for different modes of transportation; it focuses on improving road safety; and it takes into account streets designed to meet the transportation needs and place-making functions of surrounding areas.

A comprehensive background check has been completed on the entire Greater Sudbury road network. The review focused on the land use and network context, as well as the functional road class. As a result of the review, nine potential cross-sections were developed.

Residents are welcome to join any of the meetings. The project team will present the draft cross-sections and dialogue with the participants. The first meeting will be June 28 at noon at greaterudbury.ca/fullstreets1. The second meeting will take place on June 29 at 7 p.m. at greaterudbury.ca/fullstreets2.
