Complete and Green Streets
In 2023, Hennepin County formally adopted a Complete and Green Streets Policy. Initially developed in 2009 as a Complete Streets Policy, Hennepin County was the first Minnesota county to adopt a policy of its kind. The county recognized then, as it does now, the importance of addressing the needs of all people walking, rolling, biking, and using transit, as well as those driving, when planning, designing and maintaining county roads. In the update, the county evolved its policy to include green infrastructure elements into its roadway projects.
