Malden is a Complete Streets Community!
Complete Streets is a transportation policy and design approach that requires streets to be planned, designed, operated, and maintained to enable safe, convenient and comfortable travel and access for users of all ages and abilities regardless of their mode of transportation. Complete Streets allow for safe travel by those walking, bicycling, driving automobiles, riding public transportation, or delivering goods. Complete Streets are promoted as offering improved safety, health, economic, and environmental outcomes. Complete Streets emphasize the importance of safe access for all users, not just automobiles.
Malden is a Complete Streets partner. Visit: MPHA: Action for a Healthy Massachusetts or Metropolitan area planning council to learn more about the Complete Streets Coalition.
