* Complete Street concept based on average values for all streets with a given typology in the network. Consult appropriate design guidance during planning and/or design.
Relevant Design Resrouces
Through this policy, the region’s decision-making process will strive to protect those most vulnerable to harm, while accommodating a wide range of modes, by incorporating the modal hierarchy below.
The modal hierarchy recognizes that many people living in the CRCOG region lack regular or convenient access to an automobile. It also recognizes that many people who do have auto access would prefer to walk, bike, or take transit.
The following modal hierarchy shall apply to all urban, town center, and village center place types and to all streets and roads where development ordinances or land use plans call for walkable or multimodal corridors.
The modal hierarchy is intended to serve as a general framework for planning and programming, including project application review, to encourage context-specific design solutions on individual corridors, with consideration of land use planning, public input, and relevant data. In other words, what constitutes a complete street in one area may look quite different than a complete street in another. However, regardless of context, this policy seeks to expand transportation options for the most vulnerable users of the system. The Design section of this policy identifies resources to guide the accommodation of various users of the transportation system in different land use contexts.
