Why are Complete Streets being considered for Downtown Watsonville?

Like many cities throughout the country, Watsonville’s streets were originally designed with the primary goal of moving vehicles.   This Plan would establish a vision for changing Downtown Watsonville from its historically car-centric design into a more walkable, bike-able, inviting, and vibrant neighborhood that would continue to serve as Watsonville’s social hub.  By implementing Complete Streets principles, pedestrian and bicycle safety can be improved.
