Walkable Community & Corridor Plans
A WALKABLE COMMUNITY allows residents to socialize and access community amenities needed to conduct daily activities within a 10-minute walking distance. Based on a study of neighborhoods with the greatest potential to become self-sustained walkable communities and direction from the City’s 2020 Master Plan, neighborhoods were identified with the goal of recommending improvements that allow residents to easily walk to community assets. The improvements seek to offset an over-reliance on automotive-based travel within the public realm (public right-of–way) by providing alternative modes of transportation such as walking, bicycling and mass transit.
A CORRIDOR PLAN is a document that addresses the streetscape and aesthetic needs along a one to five mile stretch of a major street. The area covered includes the right-of-way in addition to the land between the right-of-way and front of a building. Areas addressed include, but are not limited to bus shelters, bus turnouts, street parking, sidewalks, landscaping, medians, crosswalks, building design standards, and signage.
