Boston Complete Streets Design Guidelines

Boston, Massachusetts

In 2010, the City of Boston’s Department of Transportation wanted to introduce planners, designers, engineers, and the wider public to an innovative new policy approach to urban street design known as Complete Streets.

With the help of architecture and planning firm Utile, Inc. and transportation planning firm Toole Design Group, the city produced Boston Complete Streets Design Guidelines, a 200-page graphic compilation featuring emerging best practices in Complete Street policies, design recommendations, and an emphasis on how key stakeholders — citizens, developers, and public agencies — could support the newly adopted policy.

Today, Boston Complete Streets Design Guidelines is a trusted resource for the city’s urban design professionals. The guidelines also have been turned into a fully interactive website.
