Vitruvian Planning led an initiative to craft a “Complete Street” policy for the City of Mountain Home. The Policy was formally adopted by Mayor and Council becoming only the third official such policy to be adopted in Idaho. The project included participants from numerous City departments, appointed citizen advisory Boards, the general public, and other local parties. Accompanying the Policy was a citywide Activity Connection Plan which assessed community assets and their adjoining street network to recommend improvements that foster increased active transportation and utilization of civic space.
