Take the Complete Streets Survey

Take the Complete Streets Survey

Planning and Traffic Engineering staff are working on a strategy and vision to continue the multi-model plan for Monterey. The term "Complete Streets" refers to streets designed and operated to enable safe use and support mobility for all users. Those include people of all ages and abilities, regardless of whether they are traveling as drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, or public transportation riders.

We encourage community members to participate and take the survey. The purpose of this survey is to receive feedback on how Monterey should plan its transportation network to accommodate all modes of transportation - by asking about your personal travel patterns and how you think those may change in the future.
