Guidelines for a New Paradigm

Local and National Street Design Manuals that Are Revolutionizing How We Plan, Design, and Build City Streets

Efforts from San Francisco to New York and Boston, as well as NACTO’s own Urban Bikeway Design Guide and upcoming Urban Street Design Guide, have resulted in a new generation of urban design guidelines that lay out blueprints for world-class, sustainable streets. How are cities transforming these ambitious policies into reality? What are the key obstacles to implementation and which traditional design standards are on the cusp of change?  Guidelines for a New Paradigm will explore how cities are translating vision to reality, using new urban design guidelines, presenting their struggles, unexpected hurdles and opportunities for education and partnership.
