A. Maximum length of blocks measured along the centerline of the street, and between intersecting street center lines, is twelve hundred feet (1,200’), except that in a development with lot areas averaging one-half (½) acre or more, or where conditions warrant, this maximum may be exceeded by five hundred feet (500’). Blocks shall be as long as reasonably possible under the circumstances within the above maximums in order to achieve depth and possible street economy and to reduce the expense and safety hazard arising from excessive street intersections.
B. Pedestrian/bicycle ways with right-of-way widths of eight to twelve feet (8’-12’) may be required where essential for circulation or access to schools, playgrounds, shopping centers, public land, transportation and other community facilities. Pedestrian/bicycle ways may also be used for utility and drainage purposes if so noted on the plat and approved by the Commission and the Town Engineer. (Prior code § 12-3-7)
