Streets That Work

Jump to: navigation, search

Streets That Work is an initiative in the city of Charlottesville to find ways to direct public and private investment that can make the city's street network safer for pedestrians and bicycles. The idea is to integrate land use and transportation policy to support an urban core while limiting impacts to the city's less dense neighborhoods. [1]


The Toole Design Group was hired in 2014 to do the work. Their scope of work can be read here.

City Council adopted the policy in September 2016. [citation needed]

After adoption, it was expected the city would embark on an audit of its zoning code in a process now known as Regulatory Framework Review. [citation needed]


Critiques

Anti-speeding activist Paul Reynolds critiqued the initiative at a March 2016 open house, citing his speed-tracking technology which captured many people speeding even after traffic-calming measures were put in place on Locust Avenue. [1]
