Typical at edges of centers
  • Where natural features are wide and numerous, reorient street network to align with direction of water flow. Maintain 660 foot interconnectivity standard as much as possible.
  • Create neighborhood parkway edges along edges of natural features. Houses on one side only, where possible. Minimize right of way (one way couplets wherever appropriate).
  • Reduce the number of roads crossing natural features without unduly compromising connectivity (crossings every 0.25 miles to 0.5 miles).
  • Align long axis of blocks to natural features to facilitate natural drainage and provide view of natural areas from streets.
  • Major arterials with transit located every mile. Minor neighborhood collector/arterials every half mile.
