Enhanced Mobility & Complete Streets

The City of Laguna Beach has developed an Enhanced Mobility and Complete Streets Transition Plan. The Enhanced Mobility and Complete Streets Transition Plan outlines a long-term vision for a city-wide transportation network that is pedestrian and bicycle friendly, reduces traffic congestion, and provides frequent and reliable transit service between home, workplace, school, recreation and shopping for residents and visitors. The plan would focused on a balanced, multi-modal transportation network that meets the needs of all users of streets, highways, sidewalks and trails, including pedestrians, bicyclists, children, persons with disabilities, seniors, movers of commercial goods and users of public transportation, as well as motorists.

What is a Complete Street?

A “complete street” is a street for everyone. It is designed and operated to enable safer access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. They allow buses to run on time and accommodate vehicles needed for commercial deliveries.

Each complete street is unique and responds to its community context. A complete street may include: sidewalks, bike lanes (or wide paved shoulders), special bus lanes, comfortable and accessible public transportation stops, frequent and safe crossing opportunities, median islands, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, roundabouts, and more. A complete street in a more rural, hilly area will look quite different from a complete street in a downtown, but both are designed to balance safety and convenience for everyone using the road.
