Access Management: A Developers Perspective
Three Examples from a Developers Perspective
- A 15 acre +/- development that was ultimately denied as they could not secure reasonable access to accommodate the site traffic.
- A redevelopment project that was ultimately approved though unable to meet any of the access management standards.
- An approval to allow additional access to support an existing development and improve on-site circulation concerns
- Dont look in the driveway spacing standard tables to decide where access will be allowed.
- Only request analysis for specific areas of concern. Do not include the kitchen sink. Apply the right tools
- Allow for pre-application meeting
- Establish a realistic and efficient process and timeline
- Be aware of political realities
- Understanding of the environment
- Understanding of the gray area
- Identify and provide reasonable solutions
- An understanding that not all driveways are created equal
- Deal with real safety concerns, not imagined
- Work toward broad, long-term solutions, not an immediate gain provides little benefit
- Accept incremental improvements to encourage and support infill and redevelopment within the urban areas
A successful access management program requires the ability to balance many simultaneous issues, concerns and interests.
