Hillsborough County’s Context-Based Classification Plan and Complete Streets Guide form the foundation for a complete streets ecosystem, working together to ensure that streets are designed in furtherance of the community’s vision. Streets are context classified according to future land use, building a bridge between transportation and land use in both form and function.
Co-presenting with Hillsborough County, this presentation will share that within each context, the Complete Streets Guide describes typologies that further define streets based upon the users that would be expected from the planned adjacent land uses. Street elements are then prioritized within each typology, thus customizing street design to the communities they serve. The Hillsborough Country Complete Streets Ecosystem has been selected for an APA Florida Award of Merit in the Best Practices category.
