Stay Healthy Streets Proposed Plan
A roundabout is a type of circular intersection. Roundabouts are often safer, more efficient, less costly and more aesthetically appealing than conventional intersection designs. They're also an excellent choice to complement other transportation objectives - including Complete Streets, multimodal networks, and corridor access management - without compromising the ability to keep freight moving through town.

Complete Streets approach integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. This helps ensure streets are safe for people of all ages and abilities; balances the needs of different modes; and supports local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments. Complete Streets make it easy and enjoyable to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle for work, play, shopping and recreation.
The Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) drafted the Complete Streets Policy working closely with Public Works Department staff. This policy was adopted by the Town Board of Trustees in April 2019.
