Complete Streets is a term that defines a growing national movement to amend transportation policy to emphasize the importance of safe access on the roadways for all users including pedestrians, cyclists, and public transit users, regardless of age or ability.
There is no singular design prescription for a Complete Street; each one is unique and responds to its community context. A complete street may include sidewalks, bike lanes (or wide paved shoulders), special bus lanes, comfortable and accessible public transportation stops, frequent and safe crossing opportunities, median islands, accessible pedestrian signals, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, roundabouts, and more.

The Nashua Region Complete Streets Advisory Committee (CSAC) serves to develop and promote a safe transportation network that serves all users including pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists of all ages and abilities in the region.
January 2023 Announcement:
At this time we are pausing future CSAC meetings. Instead, NRPC staff is spending time revamping our bicycle and pedestrian program. Right now, we are focusing on our counts: selecting new locations, setting goals for the 2023 season, and testing new equipment. Like our motor vehicle traffic counts, our bike/ped counts help us understand where and when people walk and bike, and where more sidewalks and bike paths are needed.
How can you stay involved?
- Help us pick new count locations. This is a list of where we typically count each year, and we want to add to this. Which sidewalks, trails, bridges, or intersections should we consider counting in your community? Tell us what data would be helpful to have for grant applications, evaluating projects, etc.
- Attend Transportation Technical Advisory Committee (TTAC) meetings. We plan to provide updates at these meetings, and the public is always welcome to attend in person or via Zoom.
- Let us know when your community needs help with projects, data, or resources. We will also share funding opportunities and ask for your input as we work to implement action items from the regional plan.
