Embrace Millcreek, the Township’s adopted comprehensive plan, clearly articulates the community’s vision for the West 8th Street corridor. This vision includes stakeholder consensus around creating a ‘Main Street’ feel that accommodates all modes of travel – driving, transit, biking, and walking. Placing parking to the side or rear of buildings rather than between the building and the street reduces conflicts between pedestrians and motorists. It also provides opportunities for landscaping as well as activities such as outdoor eating and sitting areas. Parking is important but it doesn’t need to be front and center.
