Complete Streets are roadways designed for all modes of transportation (pedestrian, cyclist, car, truck). Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and cycle to work.
Since November 2013, the City of Williamstown adopted a Complete Streets Policy Municipal Order; the City of Dry Ridge and City of Corinth adopted a Complete Streets Policy Resolution; and the Grant County Fiscal Court adopted a Complete Streets Policy Resolution, which was the first county-wide Complete Streets Policy adopted in the state of Kentucky.
GRANT COUNTY TRAIL SYSTEM
FFLAG was awarded a grant from interact for health to conduct a feasibility study for a county-wide trail system. FFLAG hired Kentucky League of Cities to complete the study. During this process, the community was invited to take part in public listening sessions about the trail. The feasibility study was completed in December 2016 with conclusions that a 48-mile trail was possible in Grant County. Going forward, the National parks Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program (RTCA) is providing FFLAG with technical assistance to determine the next steps for trail development.
