The Broward Complete Streets Initiative has been supported by several partners including Broward Regional Health Planning Council and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization and in collaboration with Kimley-Horn and Associates with a focus on creating safer, connected streets for all ages and abilities. UHP served as a lead agency in its initial years and over the years has focused on the development of Complete Streets Guidelines for Broward County, providing technical assistance, building capacity, developing and implementing public involvement and outreach plans, conducting walking audits, developing a Complete Streets Advisory Committee, and working to ensure the adoption of the guidelines by municipalities across the County. Because of the initial work laid by UHP and community partners, and due to their commitment to building safer streets for all, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) recently announced that it will invest 100 million dollars into Complete Streets project.
