Streets Plan to County Board Next
Complete Streets appear poised to take over the county of La Crosse. The city council will likely approve the Complete Streets concept for street construction tonight. Three county committees have done likewise and the full county board takes it up next week. For good reasons, says Jack Zabrowski, in the county's health department. Not the least of which has something to do with the county's blossoming obesity epidemic. He says physical activity has been engineered out of our lives and Complete Streets puts more of that activity safely within reach. Complete Streets essentially mandates a consideration of human powered travel when making street construction planning decisions.
