National Complete Streets Coalition

Technical Assistance

The National Complete Streets Coalition has worked with members of its diverse Steering Committee and coalition – such as AARP, the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, the Institute of Transportation Engineers, the American Planning Association, and several private consulting firms – on research reports, guidebooks, training materials, workshops, panel presentations, and other resources to educate advocates, practitioners and elected officials on complete streets policies, procedures and design techniques.

Our work has made us the preeminent source for information on Complete Streets policy development and implementation. Our extensive resources on policy development have been used successfully in hundreds of communities across the country. We have also provided extensive customized technical assistance through contracts with federal, regional, and local agencies and organizations.

We are available to help in a number of ways, including:

Group Training Events

Webinars and conference calls for communities with similar needs: Multiple communities with similar needs will benefit from webinars and conference calls with the National Complete Streets Coalition. We can survey communities for their needs and can organize webinars or phone assistance calls specific to Complete Streets policy adoption or implementation steps. These events will encourage peer exchange of ideas and resources.

Individualized Consultation

Full-day workshops: See this page for a full description of our highly effective Complete Streets workshops.

Speakers Bureau: See this page for more information on the experienced practitioners available to speak at your events.

One-on-one technical assistance

We can provide assistance on a range of topics by phone and email:

  • Initial advice on existing resources
  • Guidance in policy development steps and sharing of best practices
  • Review of draft or current policy documents
  • Ongoing strategic advice on coalition building, messaging, implementation strategies and resource needs, as well as to overcome policy adoption and implementation barriers

We also work with organizations and communities in person, by contracting with transportation experts to deliver presentations to local audiences and meet with local transportation practitioners. Potential deliverables include:

  • Community meetings presenting the Complete Streets idea and what it means locally
  • Community/regional panels on best practices in Complete Streets
  • Discussion and development of new community transportation goals and new ways of tracking progress toward those goals
  • Communications/messaging strategy

Peer Learning Opportunities

The peer learning model is central to our work. We have extensive contacts with communities adopting and implementing complete streets policies. We can help arrange peer learning opportunities between communities and can provide a facilitator from the ranks of our Workshop Instructors.
