BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings. It is hereby found and declared  that
to  achieve  a cleaner, greener transportation system the transportation
plans of New York state should consider the needs of all  users  of  our
roadways   including   pedestrians,  bicyclists,  public  transportation
riders, motorists and citizens of  all  ages  and  abilities,  including
children,  the  elderly  and the disabled. By encouraging good planning,
more citizens will achieve the health benefits  associated  with  active
forms  of  transportation  while traffic congestion and auto related air
pollution will be reduced.  Therefore, it shall be  the  policy  of  the
state  to  consider people of all ages and abilities and all appropriate
forms of transportation when planning roadway projects.
  S 2. The highway law is amended by adding a new section 331 to read as
follows:
  S 331. CONSIDERATION OF COMPLETE STREET DESIGN.  (A)  FOR  ALL  STATE,
COUNTY  AND  LOCAL  TRANSPORTATION  PROJECTS  THAT ARE UNDERTAKEN BY THE
DEPARTMENT OR RECEIVE BOTH FEDERAL AND STATE FUNDING AND ARE SUBJECT  TO

JURISDICTION OVER SUCH PROJECTS SHALL CONSIDER THE CONVENIENT ACCESS AND
MOBILITY ON THE ROAD NETWORK BY ALL USERS OF ALL AGES, INCLUDING  MOTOR-
ISTS,  PEDESTRIANS,  BICYCLISTS, AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION USERS THROUGH
THE USE OF COMPLETE STREET DESIGN  FEATURES  IN  THE  PLANNING,  DESIGN,
CONSTRUCTION,  RECONSTRUCTION  AND  REHABILITATION,  BUT  NOT  INCLUDING
RESURFACING, MAINTENANCE, OR PAVEMENT RECYCLING OF SUCH PROJECTS.
