Barbara McCann, founder of the National Complete Streets Coalition, will speak in St. Paul Monday about her new book, “Completing Our Streets: The Transition to Safe and Inclusive Transportation Networks.”
The “Complete Streets” movement calls for a broader definition and use of streets in a community, making them safe and accessible for pedestrians, bicyclists, wheelchairs and motorists.
McCann’s 7 p.m. talk will be at Common Good Books, 38 S. Snelling Ave., St. Paul. Admission is free; RSVPs can be made online.
McCann, who is from Washington D.C., founded the group that has emerged as a leader in the movement to expand use of streets for all users. St. Paul adopted a Complete Streets policy in 2009, and 500 other jurisdictions around the country have similar policies.
The goal is to consider all users when choosing, designing and building transportation projects.
