Bring a Complete Streets Workshop to your community
Effective Complete Streets policies help communities routinely create safe and inviting transportation networks for everyone, including bicyclists, drivers, transit operators and users, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.

The National Complete Streets Coalition’s workshop series responds to state and local agencies’ need to learn how to balance the needs of all users and develop and implement effective policies and procedures to routinely create networks of Complete Streets. Our workshops take participants far beyond the typical session focused on design specifics to an understanding of how to transform the decision-making process itself.

Each highly interactive daylong workshop builds local capacity to implement Complete Streets approaches and strengthens relationships between transportation practitioners, other departments, and the community. Approximately 30 key decision makers, stakeholders, and agency professionals will learn how to more effectively balance the needs of all users and routinely create and maintain Complete Streets.

Two expert instructors – one with policy expertise, the other with design experience – are selected from a pool of nationally-recognized practitioners trained to provide these workshops, providing scheduling flexibility and an array of experiences to best meet each community’s needs.

We offer four types of hands-on workshops:
