Eliminate unnecessary sidewalks and driveways
===Eliminate unnecessary sidewalks and driveways===
Sidewalks are an essential part of the transportation, recreation, safety, and character of a community. A flexible design standard for sidewalks is recommended to allow for unnecessary sidewalks to be eliminated. Sidewalks that are not needed for pedestrian circulation or connectivity should be removed. Often sidewalks are only necessary on one side of the street. Driveway impervious area can be reduced through the use of shared driveways or alley accessed garages .<ref>Center for Watershed Protection (CWP). 1998.
