The New Jersey Department of Transit released a guide that is a one-stop resource for New Jersey municipalities, counties, agencies, organizations, and advocates with an interest in implementing Complete Streets in their communities. The elements of this Model Complete Streets Policy sharpen the focus on implementing comprehensive Complete Streets policies, incorporating Green Streets and green stormwater infrastructure into Complete Streets projects and prioritizing health, equity and fairness in transportation expenditures and project selection. Complete & Green Streets for All was developed in collaboration with a wide range of government and nonprofit partners including Tri-State Transportation Campaign, the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy of Rutgers University, American Heart Association-NJ Chapter, New Jersey Future, AARP-NJ, Sustainable Jersey, regional Transportation Management Associations, Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, and many other stakeholder organizations.
