TRN-1.27 Bureau of Transportation Public Works Alternate Review Committee

PBOT is updating TRN-1.27 (Bureau of Transportation Public Works Alternate Review Committee). This rule describes the Public Works Alternative review process used by PBOT development review staff to consider requests for an alternative to the standard sidewalk cross section when unique development conditions may preclude full standard frontage improvements. Alternatives to construct or maintain a less than standard width sidewalk for the entire frontage or at a particular point are eligible for this process.
