SANDAG Smart Growth Design Guidelines

All aspects and scales of new development are addressed in these guidelines, from the design of individual sites and buildings, to the inclusion of parks and civic buildings within a neighborhood. They place special emphasis on multimodal street design that enables pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles and private automobiles to share the road comfortably and safely. Local jurisdictions in the San Diego region now use the guidelines as a starting point for their own planning efforts.
