Airway Heights Passes Complete Streets Ordinance

Congratulations to the City of Airway Heights, which recently passed a Complete Streets ordinance. For those not familiar with Complete Streets, it's a movement to design streets for convenient access for all users, not just drivers of private vehicles, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, transit vehicles, freight and people of all ages and abilities.

I just learned something new about Complete Streets today; Washington has the most complete streets policies of all the states. That's pretty impressive for us, I think. Here's Complete Streets info- by the numbers.
