Lakefront West Streetscape and Trail Design
Environmental Design Group provided engineering and design services for the shared-use path, trailheads, green infrastructure, multi-modal facilities and enhancements. We also provided landscape architecture, earthwork and grading, paving, drainage, erosion control, landscaping, striping, signage and ADA accessibility design.
Our team was hired to author the Complete Streets Policy and conduct active and engaging stakeholder and public involvement during the policy development process. We also conducted a full Active Transportation audit on the Copley Zoning Code and, where necessary, rewrote/updated the zoning code to accommodate the Complete Streets Policy.
Zoning code updates included reducing minimum yard setbacks in commercial and industrial areas, requiring new buildings and parking areas to construct a sidewalk and/or shared use path as part of the development project, adding bicycle parking spaces to the vehicular parking and loading requirements, and specifying bicycle parking locations and location standards for all new development within the Township.
