Complete Streets are necessary to promote an integrated and balanced transportation network. Complete Streets strive to provide the best possible blend of service, mobility, and convenience, and safety while reinforcing a positive social, economic, and environmental influence on West Hartford.
Complete Streets are a vital component of the Town’s transportation network and contribute directly to the health, safety, economic vitality and quality of life in the West Hartford Community. Through implementation of Complete Streets principles, the transportation network in West Hartford will be safe, accessible, comfortable and convenient for all transportation users.
The goal of the Complete Street Policy is to ensure our Town roadways complement and enhance the surrounding land use and neighborhood character and accommodate all users, including drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit patrons, older residents, children and persons with mobility impairments.
New Park Avenue Complete Streets Study
The Town of West Hartford is initiating a planning study that will focus on evaluating the New Park Avenue Transit Area corridor for potential complete street improvements and possible amendments to the zoning ordinances. A primary goal of this study is to enhance transit supportive standards for Transit Oriented Development land uses and improve inter- and intra-town pedestrian and bicycle access and connectivity to the Flatbush and Elmwood CT Fastrak Stations.
Various ideas will be explored, developed and tested through a comprehensive, robust and participatory community engagement process, guided by current transportation engineering and planning best practices.
