Futurewise Recognized Nationally For Spokane's Complete Streets Policy

Congratulations to our friends at Futurewise! The Complete Streets policy the public interest group
helped develop for Spokane was recently recognized as one of the nation’s leading examples of safe, smart transportation policy.

The National Complete Streets Coalition’s 2011 Policy Analysis analyzes over 350 Complete Streets policies that have been approved by communities across the country. The annual report, which rates every Complete Streets policy across the country on a numerical basis according to best practices criteria, highlights Spokane’s policy as the strongest in Washington State and one of the best in the nation.
