Promoting pedestrian friendly neighborhoods and streets, the City is devoted to improving and maintaining the sidewalks on an on-going basis.
The use of alternative forms of transportation is a choice that benefits personal health, reduces traffic congestion and air pollution, and enhances quality of life by creating opportunities for cost savings and social interaction.
The Master Thoroughfare Plan locates and classifies streets by needed capacity for through traffic, access to land uses and compatibility with each street's development character.
The plan also helps identify streets in poor condition so plans for improvements can be made.
The City has also focused on proper drainage throughout the island and on its roadway network due to rising tides and sea levels.
