September 10, 2012

“The design of streets directly affects the quality of life in a community. The purpose of this handbook is to provide the City of Jacksonville with context sensitive street design guidelines that support the goals adopted in the City of Jacksonville’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Element (FLUE), City of Jacksonville Visioning Plans, 2030 Mobility Plan, Horizon 2030 Recommendations and the North Florida TPO’s 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). These goals seek to promote community livability by providing safe options for travel in the region and by considering the traffic function of a street in conjunction with other modes of travel and the character of the surrounding community when making transportation decisions on local streets of significance.”

    The combined parking and bike lane is recommend at 13 ft. Doesn’t take into account the door zone. That doesn’t look like a good mix use to me.

      That issue was addressed thoroughly be one of the members of the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee of the city and the committee voted to incorporate it into the guidelines.
