Town of Tonawanda adopts Complete Streets policy

The Town of Tonawanda adopted a Complete Streets policy on Monday, which attempts to make streets accessible to walkers, bikers, and those who are handicapped.

The Complete Streets Committee has been working on the policy for the past two years, and their work including testing roundabouts on Parker Boulevard.

James Hartz, director of planning and development said the plan makes sure the town's public transportation corridor is accessible to everyone. He said an official town policy will also give the town more access to grant money.

The town also adopted its plan for "reasonable accommodation" to town services, which provides a grievance procedure for those who feel they are unable to access town services, from recreation or town buildings to using online services. The policy will be online or in the town clerk's office.
