Cook County passes Complete Streets ordinance
The Cook County Board of Commissioners approved a Complete Streets Ordinance on December 14, 2011. The ordinance was fully supported by the County Highway Department and replaces an earlier Complete Streets executive order. It strengthens and formalizes the County's commitment to creating streets that are better for everyone, regardless of their mode of travel. According to the National Complete Streets Coalition, the Cook County ordinance is one of the strongest county-level policies in the country, as well as one of the growing number that include performance measures.
