What are Complete Streets Design Guidelines?

The purpose of the Topeka and Shawnee County Complete Streets Design Guidelines is to ensure that City and County streets consider the needs of all users of the transportation system regardless of their age or abilities. These guidelines build on the foundation laid by the Complete Streets resolutions of the City of Topeka in 2009, Shawnee County in 2016, and the Metropolitan Topeka Planning Organization (MTPO) in 2011. These guidelines are intended to be a resource for staff, design professionals, developers and consultants. They seek to provide enough flexibility to respond to unique circumstances in the built environment and to incorporate emerging best practices.

Highlights include:

  • Sidewalks and Shared Use Paths

  • Driveways and Access Management

  • Street Trees

  • Bike Lanes

  • Traffic Signals

  • Signage Placement
