Over the last decade, complete streets have been firmly established with urban planners, biking, transit and health advocates as a central tenet to improved access and safety on roads largely built for the convenience of cars.

More than 100 people showed up on a Wednesday evening in Cleveland to participate in a discussion about the future of transit in Northeast Ohio.
A healthy debate is swirling around Northeast Ohio's “spatial mismatch” between people seeking work and the employment centers where jobs are moving. The debate centers on the role of transit to connect households in Cleveland’s urban core—up to 40% of which are car free—to jobs that are increasingly moving out to the periphery of the metropolitan area.
Cities that are jumping on transit are glad they did. Transit attracts "environmentally conscious, outgoing people, largely in their 30s and 40s, who are open to taking transit but find the service inconvenient or inadequate," a 2014 national poll found. "Policymakers and transit providers could most easily increase transit ridership by focusing on this group."
A new report finds that jobs in "waste mining” and investments in public transit systems would be as effective as traditional workforce development and job creation strategies in Akron, Detroit, and eight other cities that might include the green economy in poverty reduction goals.
