“Not just a way to get from A to B” – Complete Streets in Tucson, AZ

Tucson is building both advocacy for and the physical improvements for Complete Streets and is putting equity at the center of the work. Complete Streets are streets for everyone—designed and managed to prioritize safety, comfort, and access to destinations for all people who need to use a street.

“Complete Streets is more about a philosophy or an approach, and putting equity at the centerpiece of it…is a critical tenet of that…we can’t think about Complete Streets without thinking about disparities and equity issues that come with that.” – Evren Sönmez from the Living Streets Alliance
