Sparta's goals for the project.

Create a sense of place with:

-urban and neighborhood centers that are public spaces
-a new urban center at the Metro surrounded by mixed use development to enliven the area and become a true "town center," de-emphasizing the mall
-neighborhood centers ringed by higher density housing and single family housing
-design standards codified to reinforce and unify space use and circulation
-an arrival point along the exit from 795

Heighten the connection to the land with:

-a greenway along the stream that becomes the backbone of the community
-a green space as cross-axis connecting 2 neighborhood centers south of the stream to the new urban center and continuing to the light rail connection
-local history integrated in the greenway

Create a rational pattern of circulation with:

-a clear hierarchy of streets
-streets that are through streets
