Elizabethtown Borough adopted, in 2014, a Complete Streets Policy with an accompanying checklist. With the Complete Streets Policy in place, every street that is presented for resurfacing in the annual paving program is evaluated for safe, convenient, and appropriate vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle, ADA, and public transportation activity.
Recently, Elizabethtown Borough was awarded funding to help develop and adopt a Transportation Plan that supports the Complete Streets Policy of the Borough. The funding, PA Walk Works, was facilitated by the University of Pittsburgh, Center for Public Health Practice, with funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
With the PA Walk Works funding the Borough will be able to focus on complete streets concepts for several streets slated for resurfacing in the near future. The Borough is excited for this opportunity to help expand the ideas of the Complete Streets Policy.
