Complete & Green Streets Program Overview

The City of Cleveland’s Complete & Green Streets (CGS) program seeks to incorporate design elements in roadway projects that expand opportunities for travel via modes like walking, biking, and transit and reduce environmental impact within the City of Cleveland.

Below is how the CGS process works:

  • An inter-departmental City staff team meets regularly to review and discuss Complete & Green Streets projects and related topics.
  • Quarterly project presentations are made to the Transportation Infrastructure Advisory Committee (TIAC) for feedback at the earliest stage of project planning. Updates on other projects, plans, funding and related topics are also shared.
  • Staff recommendations, along with TIAC input, are provided to the Mayor’s Office of Capital Projects (MOCAP) to inform project decisions.
  • Any differences between staff and TIAC recommendations and the final project scope are documented as exceptions and posted publicly once the project finishes the design phase prior to construction.
  • An annual CGS progress report is published each September.

MOCAP also produces a newsletter summarizing all CGS + trail project activity happening throughout the city each month (click here to read or subscribe).

Transportation Infrastructure Advisory Committee (TIAC)

A key component of the CGS program is the opportunity for expanded community engagement through the establishment of a 10-person Transportation Infrastructure Advisory Committee (TIAC).

As mentioned above, the TIAC reviews and provides comments on CGS projects which are then reviewed during the scoping of a project when it enters the design phase. 

The TIAC is also a thought partner in helping City staff problem solve certain design issues, identify additional funding opportunities, and assist with things beyond the drawing board such as public engagement.

The TIAC is appointed by the Mayor and City Council. Meetings are held quarterly beginning in March on the first Thursday at 10:30am in Room 514 of City Hall.
