Poulsbo’s Complete Streets Plan awarded PSRC funding

Plan for holistic street improvements

The City of Poulsbo is embarking on an effort to create a system of complete streets.

In September, PSRC’s Executive Board approved $215,000 in Rural Town Centers and Corridors funding to create a plan to develop complete streets in Poulsbo.

The goal of the new plan is safe, convenient travel and access for people of all ages and abilities, no matter how they get around.

Poulsbo seeks to emphasize development of streets that are designed and operated to enable safe access for everyone, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders.

The new plan will include streetscape planning and preliminary design within the public right-of-way with a focus on potential redevelopment or new development of streets and sidewalks. It will also evaluate parking demand and available facilities. It will also provide a conceptual design of pedestrian, parking, transit and streetscape improvements.

The need for a Complete Streets Plan was identified in Poulsbo’s Comprehensive Plan.

The final plan will include a report identifying specific projects, costs and prioritization for development and implementation.

Between 2005 and 2019, PSRC’s Rural Town Centers and Corridors program has provided $21.4 million to support 42 priority projects in the region’s smaller towns and cities.
