Dutchess County Complete Streets webpage

The New York State Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (NYSAMPO), of which the PDCTC is a member, has developed fact sheets on Complete Streets.

Pedestrian Signal Timing

NYSAMPO developed two fact sheets related to signal timing for pedestrians: a technical version for local staff that develop signal timing plans or maintain signals, and a less technical version for elected officials and the public.

Technical Fact Sheet for local agencies- pedestrian signal timing
Non-Technical Fact Sheet- designing intersections for all users
