Land Development and Subdivision Regulations that Support Access Management
Effective local access management requires planning as well as regulatory solutions. Communities should establish a policy framework that supports access management in the local comprehensive plan, prepare corridor or access management plans for specific problem areas, and encourage good site planning techniques. Land development and subdivision regulations should be amended accordingly and communities may also consider a separate accessmanagement ordinance. Access management programs should address commercial development along thoroughfares,as well as flag lots, residential strips, and other issues related to the division and subdivision of land.
