In 2013, Lewiston adopted a Complete Streets policy; the product of a national movement seeking to improve the sustainability and equity of urban transit systems by ensuring consideration for all modes of transportation. In an era where the just sustainability concept is becoming more widely used and relevant, it is necessary to investigate the effectiveness of policies like Lewiston’s Complete Streets in achieving sustainability and human justice goals. I am exploring the degree to which Lewiston’s Complete Streets policy reflects just sustainability ideals and whether the outcomes match the policy’s purpose, focusing on elements of language, values, and process.
