SITE DESIGN AND ITS RELATION TO URBAN FORM. TRANSPORTATION, URBAN FORM, AND THE ENVIRONMENT

This conference resource paper focuses on site design and its relationship to urban form and transportation. From the site planning and design perspective, the challenge is to heighten awareness of how different transportation solutions can be incorporated into physical plans for new residential, commercial, and industrial development. Local streets also need to be planned to be more than just automobile oriented. Provision for pedestrians, bus routes, and, where appropriate, rail transit needs to be made early in the planning process. This will require rethinking traditional subdivision design and layout of nonresidential areas. Research needs in this area are identified.
