Taking It to the Streets

If you’ve biked in Bozeman at all, you’ve definitely experienced a few dicey moments between you and a car, where the car almost came out the winner. However, on February 22, the City Commission passed Resolution No. 4244, which implements a “Complete Streets” policy at the encouragement of the Bozeman Area Bicycle Advisory Board.

According to the resolution, a “Complete Street” is “one that is designed and operated to safely accommodate all users including but not limited to motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and people of all ages and abilities.” The city will take on individual sections of the Bozeman streets, making small and large adjustments to provide safe streets for everyone, from the four-year-old to the 80-year-old to the person with a disability. This resolution has been a long time coming and will ideally make the streets safer, add jobs, and even improve the environment.
