Spanish Fork Public Works | Pride & Progress

Taking PRIDE in how we serve the public AND advancing the PROGRESS of public works.

Goals and Policies

Goals and Policies

Goal One

Provide a safe, convenient, and efficient system for transporting both people and goods.

Policies:

  • Implement a program of regular maintenance and reconstruction of City streets to guarantee a safe overall system.
  • Develop intersections to obtain Level of Service C or better during peak-hour traffic periods. Reduce the intensity of proposed projects or require traffic improvements to maintain or achieve Level of Service C or better.
  • Require new developments to have or to develop appropriate access for the intensity of the development.
  • Obtain needed street rights-of-way through property dedication when subdivisions, conditional use permits, rezonings, or design review plans are approved.
  • Base street system planning on traffic generated from planned uses. Changes in planned uses are to be accompanied by an analysis of traffic impacts created by those land use changes and what improvements are needed to deal with these impacts.
  • Design sidewalks along new streets to be set back from the traveled roadway, thereby providing a safer walking area.
  • Design local residential streets with discontinuous patterns to discourage through traffic.
  • Discourage partial width streets (half streets) for new, local streets.

Goal Two

Provide pleasant, safe, and functional non-motorized transportation routes.

Policies:

  • Provide outside lanes on collector and arterial streets to be wide enough to safely accommodate bicycles.
  • Prepare a more extensive bikeway and trails plan that identifies which parts of the system should be paths, routes, or lanes, and what types of non-motorized transportation should occur in each area. Develop detailed design guidelines for each component of the system.
  • Require pedestrian walkways between sidewalks along public streets and developments adjacent to those streets. Pedestrians should not have to use driveways or parking lots as the only access points to buildings.
