MASTER STREET PLAN

Overview 

A Master Street Plan is a long-range master plan for the orderly development of an efficient roadway transportation system. Most importantly, it defines an interconnected hierarchical system of current and proposed roadways that is required to meet the anticipated long-term growth within the area.
