"Lifestyle Habits"

During the July 14th Governmental Services Standing Committee meeting, an interesting large scale issue was raised for discussion. The theme of the issue was our "community's lifestyle habits", and how we design our neighborhoods for them.

Some of the specific subdivision design elements that were included in this theme were:

1) amount of parking required (both on street and off) for neighborhoods;
2) pedestrian oriented design; and,
3) design standards for narrower neighborhood streets.
