Desired Outcomes

A list of results the BDA seeks from the implementation and long-term administration of the Curb Management Plan (CMP). These desired outcomes serve as benchmark for the BDA's evaluation of future curb projects and changing conditions that need to be addressed.

  1. Safe and efficient movement of people to and from the curbside with special care to protect pedestrians and other vulnerable users.
  2. Comfortable walking experience with improved connectivity to places and amenities.
  3. Biophilic urban design to separate pedestrians from vehicles and other curb conflicts.
  4. Quicker vehicle curbside turnover time to reduce the queue lengths and congestion impacts.
  5. Increase visits to street-level commercial businesses by reducing on-street parking times.
  6. Space for all modes to interact with the curbside without impeding throughput.
