Appendix A Glossary
The circulation element determines the transportation system necessary to accommodate the planned land use and development.
The primary issue for the circulation element is to maintain and improve the road network to safely and efficiently move people and goods in cars and trucks. However, it is also important to reduce vehicle miles traveled through coordinated land use planning and facilitating non-automotive travel (i.e., transit, bikes, and walking). Additionally, the community highly values an extensive recreational trail system that adds to the quality of life.
The circulation element and the associated diagrams set forth the goals, policies, and general parameters for the development of the transportation system. However, the specific designs and geometry of the transportation elements, (such as street and bicycle path cross sections, street alignment, streetscape widths and treatments, etc.), are to be determined by a comprehensive street system master plan that will also incorporate the standards from existing specific plans.
Figure C-1 provides the basic structure of the roadway system. Within the northwest growth area, arterials and the collectors are considered major roadways (generally on the half-mile grid including International, Perrin, Peach, Minnewawa north of Behymer, Sunnyside diagonal, Auberry Road, and Preuss), with alignments that are similar to those shown on the diagram. The exact locations of these streets will be determined by a separate action utilizing a plan line or other appropriate geometry study. Other collectors are shown conceptually and the exact alignment and number of collectors may vary.
Figure C-2 is reflective of the current Bicycle System Master Plan that is updated periodically and is the guiding document for implementation of the bicycle transportation system.
OVERARCHING GOAL: A comprehensive and well-maintained multimodal circulation system that provides for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.
Goal 1: A context-sensitive and “complete streets” transportation network that prioritizes effective connectivity and accommodates a comprehensive range of mobility needs.
Goal 2: A roadway network that is well planned, funded, and maintained.
Goal 3: A multimodal transportation network that is safe and comfortable in the context of adjacent neighborhoods.
Goal 4: A bicycle and transit system that serves as a functional alternative to commuting by car.
Goal 5: A complete system of trails and pathways accessible to all residents.
Goal 6: Safe and efficient goods movement with minimal impacts on local roads and neighborhoods.
Goal 7: A regional transportation system that connects Clovis to the San Joaquin Valley region.
