The Complete Streets program was initiated by Mass DOT to help communities create streets that provide safe and accessible options for all travel modes -- walking biking transit and motorized vehicles. Designing streets with these principles contributes toward safety health, economic viability and quality of life.
MASS DOT established a Complete Streets funding program to help communities plan and undertake improvement projects that provide context-sensitive, multi-modal options on appropriate roadways. Tisbury entered the program by writing and adopting a complete Streets Policy that will guide the development and maintenance of town roads. With funding from MASS DOT, the town has hired consultants (Howard Stein Hudson) to help us prepare a prioritization plan that will identify our priority Complete Street projects. Once the prioritization plan is complete the town will eligible for funding to implement priority projects.
