Section 5. Vehicular Design And Pedestrian Connectivity.
The street, sidewalk, walkway and pedestrian/bikeway systems of any subdivision or project should be designed in a manner compatible with the following principles:
A. Maximize the internal connection of local streets within the subdivision or project.
B. Minimize the use of cul-de-sac streets.
C. Maximize the connectivity of streets within the subdivision or project with surrounding streets or subdivisions.
D. Include a sidewalk, walkway or pedestrian/bikeway system which functionally connects the various required open space elements of the subdivision or project with other residential and nonresidential areas contained within the subdivision or project.
E. Provide a direct linkage to any town greenway which abuts or is adjacent to the subdivision or project.
F. Provide a vista termination for all internal streets so that no uninterrupted street segment extends for more than 1,350 feet.
(See page 5-1 of the pdf of this section to see examples of vista terminations.)
G. Provide for street trees along all local and collector streets within a subdivision or project. While various options are available to comply with this recommendation, the Town does prefer that the six (6) foot utility strip be provided adjacent to back of curb. Species selected for use as street trees shall be approved by the Town of Plainfield.
(See page 5-2 of the pdf of this section to see examples of various methods for the provision of street trees.)
