The Resources Required section of the template is intended for public health practitioners advocating for passage of state and local Complete Streets Policy. It does not address the capacity, infrastructure and funding needed for policy implementation. Policy implementation is under the purview of state and county departments of transportation and local public works departments. Their mandate and funding for Complete Streets policy implementation is beyond the scope of Center TRT’s review and translation.
