Policies

While DelDOT is responsible for nearly 90 percent of roadways in the state of Delaware, local governments have responsibility for land-use policies that impact and influence transportation networks.  Local policymakers have direct control over decisions that shape land use and development patterns; street interconnectivity; multi-modal transportation options; the extent to which the built environment is bike-, pedestrian-, and transit-friendly; and the degree to which a community environment is healthy and active.  Local government resolutions, policies, and regulations (e.g., subdivision, zoning, and unified development codes) should be consistent with the state of Delaware’s Complete Streets Policy and federal ADA law.
