Streets That Work
Streets That Work is an official policy in the city of Charlottesville to direct public and private investment that can make the city's street network safer for pedestrians and bicycles. The policy seeks to to integrate land use and transportation policy to support an urban core while limiting impacts to the city's less dense neighborhoods. 
After adoption in 2016, it was expected the city would embark on an audit of its zoning code in a process now known as Regulatory Framework Review. Whether or not that happened should be investigated. However, that Code Audit process did not happen soon afterwards as expected and planned.
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.
