URBAN STREETS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENTS - MONOGRAPH NO 7

URBAN STREETS ARE TREATED AS AN ORGANIC SYSTEM WHICH MANIFESTS VARIABLE RELATIONSHIPS WITH ASPECTS OF THE OVERALL URBAN ENVIRONMENT. VARIABLES SUGGESTED FOR FURTHER STUDY ARE TRAFFIC, CITY PLANNING, DWELLINGS, AND COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES. IN TERMS OF TRAFFIC, THE STUDY WOULD EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF TRAFFIC FLOW ON ONE SEGMENT AS IT AFFECTS MOVEMENT THROUGH THE ENTIRE NETWORK. IN TERMS OF CITY PLANNING, THE STUDY WOULD SUGGEST THE IMPORTANCE OF DESIGNING STREETS AS THEY CONTROL OTHER DEVELOPMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS AND AS THEY INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER. IN TERMS OF DWELLINGS, THE STUDY WOULD ASSESS THE EFFECT OF STREET NETWORKS ON THE ACTIVITIES AND AESTHETIC QUALITIES OF THE HOUSING THEY SERVE. FINALLY, THE STUDY WOULD EXAMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES AND THE STREET SYSTEM WITH REFERENCE TO CUSTOMER ACCESS AND GOODS MOVEMENT. /UMTA/
