 Wayfinding in Broward County    In 2002, the Broward County Commission identified the establishment of a "Sense of Place" for Broward County as one of its priority goals. To further this goal, we prepared a Community Design Guidebook, with consultant services provided by local architect Anthony Abbate. The Guidebook will be utilized as the County redevelops to accommodate the anticipated future population and will address the following principles:
  • Creation of a more pedestrian/transit friendly environment
  • Making Broward County one of the nation's most visually attractive counties
  • Providing for a mix of uses and housing types
  • Enhancing redevelopment and economic opportunity

Through an extensive public participation process and in partnership with local municipalities, the Guidebook dentifies standards and patterns for land uses, road cross-sections and design features, building designs and orientation, street layouts and pedestrian and transit linkages, that can be utilized to achieve a "Sense of Place." The Broward County Comprehensive Plan, Broward County Land Development Code, traffic engineering standards and other codes and standards will be reviewed and changes recommended to further the design standards and facilitate the desired patterns.
