What is a Complete Streets Community?

A Complete Streets community is one where the streets are safe, convenient, and pleasant for everyone: pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.

In 2010, Red Wing passed its Complete Streets Policy Resolution. This resolution complements the City of Red Wing’s Comprehensive Plan, approved in 2007, which calls for an increased number of safe and aesthetically pleasing byways for bicyclists and pedestrians.

In 2011, Red Wing adopted a Bicycle-Pedestrian Master Plan.

To join our advocacy group for bicyclists and pedestrians, please email Michelle Leise at
