  • Would be good to have this slide with fewer labels (no red labels). Probably require GIS work.

  • These photos are stacked
  • Add 2 nd click shading of five and ten minute min walk distances
  • Replace boulevard section with higher res image? ( I don’t know where this image lives) Design820073DetPlanBlvd180RW_revised_sm.jpg

    1. 1. RESTORATION, FL Transit Ready Design at the Community Scale
    2. 2. The Transit Ready Region Airport Lake Toho Horizon West Downtown Orlando Kissimmee Disney Sanford New Growth Areas TOD sheds for proposed transit
    3. 3. The Transit Ready Sector <ul><li>Design greenfield developments to be transit ready over time. </li></ul><ul><li>Plan for build-out </li></ul><ul><li>Shift our focus from planning projects to planning sub-regions or area-wide districts </li></ul><ul><li>In infill areas fill out the system one piece at a time. Think long term </li></ul>
    4. 4. Transit Ready Area Planning 10-minute walk Near-term development @ 5 DU/Acre Future development @ 15 DU/Acre 5-minute walk 1 mile <ul><li>Typical new town structure. 4 villages around Town Center: </li></ul><ul><li>20,000 DU </li></ul><ul><li>50,000 pop </li></ul><ul><li>12,500 people per square mile </li></ul>Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line on 2 mile centers or a streetcar system. <ul><li>Market-driven, transit-ready designs for new development using multi-way boulevards </li></ul>
    5. 5. The Transit Ready Project <ul><li>Restoration </li></ul><ul><li>City of New Smyrna Beach </li></ul><ul><li>City of Edgewater </li></ul>
    6. 6. Innovative Planning Through Regional Cooperation PREVIOUS DRI MAP H CURRENT DRI MAP H <ul><li>No golf course in need of constant watering </li></ul><ul><li>Less lawn area (due to higher densities) means less irrigation and less fertilizer and pesticide </li></ul><ul><li>Less edge impact means less unintentional runoff of fertilizer and pesticide directly into the natural system </li></ul>
    7. 7. The Restoration Plan <ul><li>5,187 Acres </li></ul><ul><li>32% Developed (1,660 acres) </li></ul><ul><li>68% Preserved (3,527 acres) </li></ul><ul><li>8,500 Mixed Residential Units </li></ul><ul><li>Density of 5.1 units/acre </li></ul><ul><li>3.2 Million Sq Ft of Commercial, Retail, Office, Civic and Medical </li></ul>
    8. 8. Compact, Mixed-Use Development is a Prerequisite for Transit
    9. 9. Multimodal Corridor <ul><li>Streetcar as a developer amenity </li></ul><ul><li>Use of transit to significantly reduced concurrency payments for off site road improvements </li></ul><ul><li>Phasing development with transit </li></ul><ul><li>Commitment in the development order including appropriate phasing </li></ul>
    10. 10. Multi-Modal Corridor
    11. 11. Multi-Modal Corridor: The Transit Boulevard
    12. 12. Phasing the Multi Way Boulevard <ul><li>In the first phase transit on one side will likely be built primarily as an amenity. </li></ul><ul><li>Per the development order, transit is built in phase with transit-supportive densities </li></ul><ul><li>Similarly frontage lanes need only be added when development facing the road begins. </li></ul>
    13. 13. Options for Phasing the Boulevard <ul><li>Minimize infrastructure costs </li></ul><ul><li>Short term: phase the construction </li></ul><ul><li>Long term: design phases to minimize tear-outs </li></ul>
    14. 14. The Conservation Hamlet
    15. 15. Conservation Hamlet
    16. 16. Conservation Hamlet
    17. 17. Transit Ready Design <ul><li>For sectors or area plans </li></ul><ul><li>For large projects </li></ul><ul><li>Reserve land for transit AND for transit appropriate land uses. </li></ul><ul><li>Use design solutions that ensure the roads and space function in the near and long term </li></ul>
