American Association of Retired Persons

This  tool kit in our ongoing efforts to assist AARP state offices and others in successful efforts to enact and implement Complete Streets policies. This tool kit will help transportation practitioners in their efforts to identify and establish performance measures to evaluate transportation projects.

This resource, meant for agencies interested in but just beginning their project evaluation efforts, intends to:

  • Provide general steps to take in evaluating projects.
  • Discuss useful measures for common Complete Streets goals of access, economy, environment, equity, place, public health, and safety, and the metrics that a jurisdiction may use.
  • Offer a few tips for using those measures to tell the story of a project once it is completed.
  • Share further resources for those ready to dive deeper into the why and how of performance measurement for Complete Streets.
