Pedestrian Friendly Code Directory

Explore our pedestrian friendly code directory to learn how zoning and subdivision codes can create streets and neighborhoods that are safe, comfortable, and convenient for pedestrians, transit users, and bicyclists.

Wayfinding signs, landmarks, and street patterns enable pedestrians to be oriented within an area and successfully find their destination. Pedestrians move more slowly than other types of traffic, and may be physically exhausted or lose significant time by taking a wrong turn. Pedestrians benefit from signs and objects close to eye level that contain dense information to help them find their way around. These elements focus on the aspects of a street that help pedestrians navigate through a neighborhood.
