Carver Complete Streets

Welcome to the Carver Complete Streets Home Page

The Town of Carver is participating in the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program to make Complete Streets a part of daily practice. Complete Streets are roadways that safely and comfortably accommodate all users, regardless of age and ability or mode of transportation. Through the 2019 DLTA program, SRPEDD is assisting the town with the development and adoption of a Complete Streets Policy that directs all town departments to consider Complete Streets design elements in all projects and phases going forward..

With technical assistance funding from the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program, SRPEDD plans to help the town develop a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan (list of projects) that will ultimately be used to apply for funding from MassDOT to begin the construction of projects on the plan. Additional information about the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program and all project presentations, information, and resources can be found in the document library of this webpage.

MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program

The MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program was launched in February 2016 to provide technical assistance and construction funding to communities that demonstrate a commitment to include Complete Streets in policy and practice. In short, a community may be eligible for up to $400,000 in construction funding to implement Complete Streets elements in municipal projects and up to $35,000 in technical assistance funding in order to develop a plan to do so. The program is divided into three (3) “tiers” and a municipality must satisfy the requirements of the previous tier in order to advance through the program.

 

Tier 1 - Training & Policy Adoption

  • Attendance at either an "Introductory" or "Advanced" Complete Streets Training (must be a municipal official/employee)
  • Development and local adoption of a Complete Streets policy. Followed by submission to MassDOT for approval.

Tier 2 - Prioritization Plan Development

  • Determination of Complete Streets needs and development of a prioritized list of infrastructure projects. Technical assistance available (up to $35,000 to develop the plan).

Tier 3 - Project Construction Funding

  • Application for construction funding to implement the Complete Streets infrastructure projects on the Prioritization Plan.
