Forward Pinellas as the unified MPO/PPC has been tasked by a special act of the state legislature to coordinate transportation and land use planning in Pinellas County. One way to strengthen this coordination is to incentivize transportation investments so they serve as a catalyst for transformative redevelopment, particularly through the implementation of “Complete Streets” projects.
Complete Streets are designed, operated and maintained for all users, regardless of age or ability, based on the context of the roadway and its surrounding area. Through collaboration with its committees and board, Forward Pinellas has developed an incentive program to assist local governments in planning, designing and constructing Complete Streets projects.
