Neighborhood Road Design Guidebook
The Neighborhood Road Design Guidebook, which is a joint venture between the Chapter and the Massachusetts Homebuilders Association is currently underway. The Guidebook includes the latest in sustainable road design best practices including low impact development techniques. Its’ focus is on local residential neighborhood streets, an area that is under the control and influence of the Commonwealth’s municipalities. It has a focus on neighborhood streets as more than just pathways for vehicles, but also pedestrians and bicycles. The benefits of sustainable road design are many and well detailed within the guidebook. They accrue to both the community, its future and current residents and to the developer. The collaboration between homebuilders and planners is to be commended. Download your copy today.
