Missouri is a national leader in the Complete Streets movement, with more than 2.7 million Missourians living in municipalities with Livable or Complete Streets policy. It was formed in 2010 as a public-private partnership between state, local and private organizations and citizens to help more communities learn about the benefits of transportation planning for all users. Each year, more communities are choosing to write and implement their own policies.
The Missouri Livable Streets project seeks to support and improve the health, well-being and economic vitality of all people and communities across the state through transportation and active living policy development and education.
It isn’t just about building sidewalks and bike lanes, it’s about making our communities more connected and open to people regardless of age, ability, or mode of transportation. Livable Streets policies promote healthy, vibrant communities that businesses want to invest in, people want to live in, and tourists want to visit.
Coalition and Partners
Groups from across the state have been supporting the work of Missouri Livable Streets in their communities. Missouri Livable Streets is led by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the PedNet Coalition, TrailNet, and the University of Missouri.
