The purpose of Section 4.19 is to assure a safe, efficient, maintainable and balanced transportation system that preserves community character and provides for all modes of transportation. Section 4.19 establishes minimum standards for the design of the transportation network, including roadways, sidewalks, pedestrian walkways, bicycle lanes and equestrian paths; policies and procedures for traffic calming; and regulations to manage the location, design and operation of access to County roadways. The traffic calming provisions of Section 4.19 provide for the application of roadway design elements and traffic control devices to promote safe and pleasant conditions for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians on neighborhood streets. Access management regulations protect the safety and capacity of the County’s major roadways by reducing conflicts between moving vehicles, parked vehicles, and pedestrians or bicyclists. The intent of Section 4.19 is to balance the right of reasonable access to private property with the right of the citizens of Martin County to safe and efficient travel by all modes of transportation.
