TRN-1.09 - Design Standards for Public Streets

DESIGN STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC STREETS
Administrative Rule Adopted by Bureau of Transportation Engineering and Development Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority
ARB-TRN-1.09

  
I. Discussion
 
Public street design is based on a number of national and local engineering standards. Local standards used for street elements and right-of-way widths continue to be based on the following Council adopted items:
- Skinny Street Standards (adopted 1991)
- Pedestrian Design Guidelines of the Pedestrian Master Plan (adopted 1998)
- Bicycle Master Plan (adopted 1996)
The Office of Transportation has developed a booklet, Creating Public Streets and Pedestrian Connections through the Land Use and Building Permit Process, which incorporates existing street design standards and identifies other relevant design manuals. Where possible, information has been simplified for easier understanding, and it is presented based on zoning designations.

 
II. Administrative Rule for Design Standards for Public Streets
  
Public streets shall be designed using the standards provided in the booklet, Creating Public Streets and Pedestrian Connections through the Land Use and Building Permit Process.
Section IV, Administrative Review Process for Technical Decisions for Street Design found on Page 23 of the “Creating Public Streets and Pedestrian Connections through the Land Use and Building Permit Process” is removed in its entirety. Any appeals of Public Works Permits shall follow Code Chapter 17.06.
