CREATIVE APPROACHES TO SAFER STREET DESIGN
To test out creative approaches to safer street design, the National Complete Streets Coalition launched the Safe Streets Academy. We worked with three cities around the country to build skills in safer street design, creative placemaking, and community engagement, then helped the cities put these skills into practice.

NEW JERSEY 2017 COMPLETE STREETS DESIGN GUIDE
This Guide provides a concise but thorough reference guide for designing streets to meet multimodal and community needs. This Complete Streets toolbox draws on best practices from a variety of national design standards and guidelines (e.g., FHWA, AASHTO, NACTO, etc), emphasizes the role of context and flexibility during the design process, and describes the benefits and applications of numerous design options. Example street typologies illustrate how different treatments can be applied to different contexts throughout New Jersey to create a more Complete Street.

Looking for input from the community!
Anyone you know coming to Asbury Park for dinner, music, or beach pointing out the lack of parking? We’re so happy that everyone loves visiting AP, but we can’t “create” more parking, or lay asphalt everywhere, so the solution is fewer cars. The city is just over 1 mile sq. Park at the train station area and look at these options. We have jitneys, pedicabs, Free Ride, and of course fun with AP Pedalcycle. AND Bike Share!

STREETFILMS: What’s an LPI and how they make streets safer for peds and cyclists:
80-second spot called “Boxes,” from Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors illustrates the problem through metaphor. It shows drivers tooling around in cardboard boxes rather than automobiles—the better to humanize the devastating crush of traffic and the emotional toll of such a physical problem, while also keeping things lighthearted.
Jeff Speck is a city planner and urban designer who, through writing, public service, and built work, advocates internationally for smart growth and sustainable design. The Christian Science Monitor called his recent book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, “timely and important, a delightful, insightful, irreverent work.”
