Pitched roofs, simple window designs, and covered entries and porches are recommended.
Pre-fabricated homes and structures that are highly visible from the Route 31 West Corridor should incorporate materials that are non-reflective and naturally-appearing such as natural or simulated wood, brick, stone, or other similar materials. Smooth, ribbed, or corrugated metal and plastic panels are not preferred.
PARKING AND ACCESS
DG18. Encourage the use of shared driveways. In new construction, limit the number of direct access points and intersections with Route 31 West. Too many driveways can lead to traffic safety issues caused by vehicle turning movements.
Close existing unrestricted parking lots fronting on Route 31 West. Install a landscape buffer or barrier parallel to the road and define specific vehicle entry and exit points.
