Within my local community, we are considering whether we should require
sidewalks on an existing roadway that is constrained by embankments, etc.
No sidewalks exist today. But the development activity within the area
suggests pedestrian movement may be appropriate. The question is whether
the idea is appropriate for the area.
We know we have challenges in the area (such as the constrained roadway;
existing development; traffic volume and speed.
Any suggestions on links where I can see minimum standards for safety and
efficiency, etc. would be appreciated. Of course, we will work with our
Engineer, etc., but I like to obtain a working knowledge of the issue first.
