The basic idea is that if a street serves only cars, it's not complete- it also needs to serve pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, disabled people, the elderly, children, and maybe even have traffic calming, ecological landscaping, or other features. Complete Streets is context-sensitive and is a good way for permaculturists to start a conversation with local government and planners. There are some grants and state funding available for Complete Streets projects.
Every trip starts and ends with walking.
