Street and right-of-way improvements related to multimodal transportation, transit oriented development (TOD), district revitalization, beautification and other objectives should be designed to complement frontage land use and development.
Base street design recommendations on a local corridor vision integrating frontage buildings, sidewalk spaces, and roadway/shoulder conditions. For example, storefront commercial space in mixed-use or standalone development generally benefits from on-street parking and/or convenient off-street parking, and from high roadway visibility. This condition is typical of node areas (see Figure 5-1a). Residential development, as might be typical in link areas, can be successful without curbside parking, with additional landscape materials to screen passing traffic (see Figure 5-1b).
