Promote walkability in the community by creating a complete and safe pedestrian network to reduce vehicle miles traveled, promote healthy lifestyles and heighten community interaction.
Build sidewalks along all streets internal to and immediately adjacent to the project boundary. Provide 4-foot (minimum) sidewalks on both sides of residential streets and 8-foot (minimum) sidewalks in mixed-use areas. Provide pedestrian crosswalks at all intersections interior to the project in which one of the intersecting streets is rated over 35 mph. An off-street pathway may qualify as a pedestrian accommodation (instead of on-street sidewalks) if the linear distance of the path is no greater than 120% of the road path linear distance.
Provide benches, pedestrian-scaled lights and trash receptacles at regular intervals.
Provide curb cuts and accessible routes, as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility, for all new pedestrian routes.
Conduct a circulation study that outlines the hierarchy of streets in the project in order to make appropriate recommendations for pedestrian accommodations.
- Conceptual site plan detailing all design elements outlined within pedestrian accommodations.
- Construction documents, such as a signage plan, landscape plan and/or street lighting/street furniture details.
- Circulation study.
- Inspection by an ECC Technical Advisor
