Complete Streets policies, bills, and resolutions in Herculaneum, DeSoto, Ferguson, St. Louis, Columbia, Lee's Summit, Grandview, Pevely, Blue Springs, Independence, Elsberry, and Festus are also ranked in the report, and generally stand up very well when compared with other  Complete Streets policies around the nation.

The Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation's vision is to implement Complete Streets policies at all levels of government in Missouri--local, state, and federal--and the growing number of Complete Streets across Missouri is making a big impact on bicycling and walking in Missouri.

In 2007, Missouri had only 3 Complete Streets policies adopted.  Today, Missouri has 21 policies in place, including a Complete Streets Resolution adopted by the Missouri General Assembly in 2011.
