Testimony & SCDOT comments from
September Commission meeting
Last month, we testified yet again to SCDOT on how long this state advocacy took us. We still await the draft Departmental policy for Complete Streets from the Secretary. We remain committed to working only towards a robust policy.
First video below is PCC testimony on behalf of the entire Alliance, explaining how long it took the entire SC Livable Communities Alliance to communicate the value of people's lives while walking and biking, before we got commitment for a policy. Then see other comments from the Secretary and Commissioners.
