19th Avenue PLAT Study

Connected Suburban Pattern This pattern of development supports a connected road network to access activity centers and community amenities, and offers neighborhood to neighborhood connections for all modes. A good local roadway network alleviates congestion on principal arterial roads by offering alternative corridors and routes to destinations which can be safely accessed by all users and modes. Mixed-use is encouraged in this development scenario, and a medium level of density is most prominent with some high-density commercial nodes. Access and traffic circulation within an activity center is interconnected and support safe bicycle and pedestrian movements. Figures 5 and 6 show how a Connected Suburban development pattern uses a local roadway network to link neighborhoods to activity centers and how mixed-use development can fit into the context of suburban design.
