Heartland Town Square: Transit Choices

Pedestrian and Bike Connectivity

Pedestrian accessibility and streets with a pedestrian-friendly character are necessary to promote a strong and active social life for the community. The master plan, therefore, incorporates an interconnected system of landscaped sidewalks, providing a bike and pedestrian-friendly network that connects the various neighborhoods, the Town Center and other centers of entertainment and activity. The pathway system is located primarily along the perimeter of the site in the buffer areas, providing connections from the Town Center to surrounding neighborhoods.
