Complete streets infrastructure for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and/or people of all ages and abilities are not required to be provided in new construction, retrofit or reconstruction of projects when:

A. A documented absence of current or future need exists, as identified in city plans and future travel demand models; or

B. Nonmotorized uses are prohibited by law; or

C. Routine maintenance and repair of the transportation network is performed that does not change the roadway geometry or operations; or

D. The cost would be disproportionate to the total project cost; or

E. The city engineer issues a documented exception concluding that application of complete streets principles is unnecessary or inappropriate because it would be contrary to public safety; or

F. Where there are significant adverse environmental impacts to streams, wetlands, steep slopes, or other critical areas; or

G. Where the establishment would be contrary to the transportation element of the comprehensive plan; or

H. Where their inclusion in a small, isolated project would create a very short section of improvements with problematic transitions on either end or that are in an isolated area unlikely to be followed by similar improvements at either end, resulting in little progress on implementing complete streets networks.
