Complete Streets for Clinton

 A “Complete Streets” Resolution was approved by Clinton City Council at their monthly meeting Monday night. City Manager Frank Stovall noted that during the July Council meeting a group of citizens expressed to Council the desire to see the city adopt a complete streets approach to street and sidewalk construction. This approach requires the city to factor in pedestrian and bicycle travel in transportation planning if feasible. In his background to council, Stovall noted this is already being used by Clinton in downtown streetscape planning. He also pointed out that East and West Corporate Center Drive both feature landscaping and wide lanes that could allow for bicycle use. Factors of “Complete Streets” include improving bicycle access through installation of bike racks, bike lanes, shared use lanes and other facilities. It also encourages the use of greenway corridors.

   Clinton City Council gave the “Complete Streets” resolution approval by voice vote this week.
