Functional Classification, the conceptual basis behind highway, street and network planning, also impacts all transit planning, determines bicycle solutions, and unknowingly, establishes where we can walk. Even zoning ordinances and comprehensive plans are tied to functional classification. This session presents a brief history of functional classification in planning, its detrimental impacts to urbanism, and explores alternative classification and planning ideas that can promote more livable, walkable streets and sustainable cities.
