The Rye YMCA Complete Streets Project is an initiative to promote safer and multi­modal streets in the City of Rye, Village of Mamaroneck, Town of Mamaroneck, and Village of Larchmont as part of the Rye YMCA's Activate America campaign. The Capstone team evaluated physical, policy, and funding possibilities for the four com­munities. Using one study site in each community, the Capstone team applied Complete Street principles to develop a series of physical recommendations that enhance the site for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike. The Capstone team also provided recommendations for policy implementation and funding opportunities. At the culmination of the project, the Capstone team presented its findings to the communities and stakeholders.
