The road alignment for Highland Village Green was influenced by practical realities on the site (steep grading, abrupt elevation changes, etc.), as well as direction received during community engagement (the community requested a design that limited traffic impacts on surrounding streets). The current alignment places the road over the regional storm trunk, and existing utility right of way. This allows for the concentration of the proposed roadway and all the utility infrastructure in one place, and reduces traffic impacts on surrounding residential streets. Future utilities would align along the existing storm sewer.
This approach provides the best and most appropriate use of the land, as it is not possible to build anything other than a road on the regional storm trunk.
