At the End of April Governor Patrick signed the Transportation Bond Bill into law, which authorizes $50 million in funding for cities and towns through a new Complete Streets Certification Program over the next five years! The Complete Streets Certification program will make it safer and easier to walk, bike, and use public transit across the Commonwealth.
This is a great victory and we were proud to be part of this legislative success as a member of the Act FRESH Campaign along with other great partners representing community health, planning, public transit, walking, and biking advocates, and municipal leaders representing cities and towns across the State.
The fight is not over yet, we still need your help. We will need to push hard to ensure the program is funded and implemented successfully. We will be asking for your continued support d to ensure that this program truly makes a difference in the lives of Massachusetts residents.
