The Planning Board publishes the Guidelines for the Analysis of the Traffic Impact of Development Proposals (Guidelines)
. This document establishes criteria by which staff and applicants with land development proposals can assess the traffic impact of the development proposals, and incorporates methods and practices which are currently being used to review and evaluate traffic conditions.
Traffic is also reviewed in detail during review of mixed-use and comprehensive design rezoning applications. Certain types of special exceptions require limited traffic analyses, but in accordance with the required special exception findings, such studies often focus on traffic safety. As noted earlier, detailed site plans are intended to review design issues, and as such generally do not involve the review of transportation adequacy issues.
