19th Avenue PLAT Study

Figure 6: Winthrop Village Town Center, Hillsborough County, Florida. A connected suburban commercial development pattern. Source: Google Earth 2019. According to the study, “In connected suburban settings, the needs of all users are still accommodated, but more priority is given to vehicles because there is a greater separation of uses and more trips require a car. Vehicle lanes are slightly wider than in compact urban settings, and cyclists are typically accommodated in bike lanes rather than sharrows. On-street parking, if provided, can be located on a side access lane to allow vehicles to move unrestricted in center lanes. An interconnected network of sidewalks is provided, sized appropriately for adjacent land uses: wider in mixed-use settings and narrower in residential areas where pedestrian activity will be less.
