The City of Chillicothe was one of seven communities selected from across the state.

Mayor Chuck Haney: “This grant will give the City the opportunity to receive hands-on technical assistance and trainings that involve our own community members, traffic and law enforcement professionals, as well as our civic leaders. More and more communities in Missouri recognize that transportation planning is critical, not just to our economic development, but also to planning for our future and changing demographics. We are honored to be one of the communities in the Show-Me state selected for this grant.”

Livable Streets, also known as Complete Streets, is a design and planning approach that considers the needs and safety concerns of all residents and users, including vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, seniors and the mobility-impaired.

To date, there are 23 Missouri communities that have passed Livable Streets or Complete Streets ordinances or policies. Communities can adopt these non-binding resolutions to set policy directions and ensure safe access to transportation for all residents, regardless of ability.

This project was funded in part through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (MODHSS). There will be a public meeting in June, further information on the details forthcoming.
