Project description
Route 38 photo
Eliminating inefficient sprawl
development is one of the
goals of the Route 38 Smart
Growth Planning Initiative.
The purpose of the Route 38 Smart Growth Planning Initiative was to address concerns related to increasing traffic and congestion along the corridor through a supporting smart growth land use vision for each of the towns and recommended transportation system improvements. This study examined future land use potential through a review of current municipal zoning ordinances and planned developments. An alternative future land use vision based upon smart growth planning principles was developed in close coordination with corridor residents, local representatives and county staff. A number of supporting transportation recommendations were identified to improve travel and economic development activities along the corridor. These potential transportation improvements include signal timing and coordination, intersection design upgrades, installation of sidewalks, improvement of public transit amenities and access improvements such as parallel frontage roads.

Project status
A final report containing both land use and transportation recommendations was completed in 2009.
