Community Neighborhood Development (2 credit hours)
The Community Neighborhood Development course provides guidelines for the planning and design of community neighborhood developments.  
 
Design principles and processes must be considered in community neighborhood development to promote safe and effective movement of all roadway users in the community.  They must provide mobility for users, create a safe street for users, accommodate efficient movement of goods, promote access for emergency services, transit, waste management and delivery trucks and provide access to properties.  
 
Community neighborhood development consists of designers balancing the needs of through traffic, commercial areas, pubic areas and residential areas.  Traffic volume, trip characteristics, speed and level of service and other factors in the functional classification system related to the mobility of motor vehicles must be integrated with the needs of bicyclists or pedestrians and consider the context of land use of the surrounding environment.    
 
The community roadway system is defined from high speed, low access to low speed, greater access.  Definitions of the roadway types are provided to distinguish the differences between the functions of the roadway types.  Parking and pedestrian crossings are discussed as they must be built into the community roadway system.   
 
The use of one-way streets is covered to identify how they can strategically be used in community neighborhood design to attain safer and more controlled travel.  The different types of intersections are defined as they relate to traffic control in an ever-increasing usage of a roadway system.

The Student will Understand:  
·General principles of thoroughfares
 
·Design principles as they relate to providing mobility for users, creating a safe street for users, accommodating movement of goods, providing access for large vehicles and providing access to properties
 
·Design process is discussed as it relates to balancing the mobility of all users while maintaining the community neighborhood feel
 
·Community roadway system as it has evolved from the early 1900’s to now is covered
 
·Links and nodes are defined as they relate to the roadway connection system
 
·On street parking options for community neighborhood development are provided
 
·Pedestrian crossings as they relate to conflict points are broken into signal controlled pedestrian crossings, mid-block crossings and pedestrian overpasses
 
·Access management is discussed as there is a direct correlation between mobility and access
 
·One-way streets are discussed for possible inclusion in community neighborhood development
 
·Intersections are broken down into T-intersections, two way stop control, four way stop control, roundabout and signalized and how they can be integrated into community neighborhood development
