Goals: To develop a Complete Streets plan for the Town of Amherst that will help to guide transportation in the community.
Complete Streets Program
The TAC has advised that the Town of Amherst participate in the Complete Streets program, a MassDOT funded initiative.
"A Complete Street is one that provides safe and accessible options for all travel modes - walking, biking, transit and vehicles – for people of all ages and abilities.
Designing streets with these principles contributes toward the safety, health, economic viability and quality of life in a community by improving the pedestrian and vehicular environments. Providing safer, more accessible and comfortable means of travel between home, school, work, recreation and retail destinations helps promote more livable communities." -MassDOT website
