This manual aims to facilitate the design of beautiful, safe, walkable, and liveable streets. The manual identifies the different functions of streets and emphasizes the need to design complete streets that provide space for all users. Through the street and intersection templates one can get a sense of how the different elements come together for different types and sizes of streets. Finally, there is an overview of the activities that are undertaken as a part of the overall process of street design.

This manual is intended for planners, urban designers, landscape architects, civil engineers, and, most importantly, government officials and citizens who are interested in improving the quality of urban environments and the character of streets in our cities.
