Vaughan Complete Streets Guidelines

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A Complete Street is defined as a street that is safe and accessible for people of all ages and abilities, whether they are walking, biking, taking public transit or driving. Using a Complete Streets approach to design Vaughan’s street network will create spaces that allow all street users to travel safely and enjoyably — not only motorists.

Vaughan has a complex and diverse public and private street system, where the size, use, character and priorities for each street vary across each community and the city as a whole. To create an efficient, safe and diverse street system, the City is developing Complete Streets Guidelines.

The guidelines will help planners and designers incorporate the proper necessities such as cycling facilities, sidewalks, enhanced landscape elements, dedicated transit lanes and measures to slow down traffic when building or updating public streets. When complete, the Vaughan Complete Streets Guidelines will inform City decisions related to transportation planning, capital infrastructure projects, development applications, streetscape design and construction.

Engagement on the Vaughan Complete Streets Guidelines is now closed.

From Wednesday, June 15 to Tuesday, July 5, the City invited citizens and stakeholders to use the interactive mapping tool below to tell us which streets and areas in the city feel safe for all road users and which could be improved.

Thank you to those who participated! The feedback collected will help the City understand the current opportunities and challenges faced by those using Vaughan’s streets – and identify potential ideas for how to address those challenges.
