RESIDENTIAL STREETS: OBJECTIVES, PRINCIPLES AND DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
This book sets forth objectives, principles, and design considerations which are specifically oriented toward residential streets, and distinguishes between residential streets and commercial or industrial streets and major arterials and interstate highways. Based on two years of joint research, discussion, and participation by ULI, ASCE and NAHB, this is not a manual of current standard practice, but rather a guide to how we should arrive at better, future practices. Unnecessarily high street improvement standards may contribute significantly to rising land development and housing costs without assuring the best long-term value for either community or homebuyer.
