C2.18 Create short-block, well-connected street networks in new neighbourhoods and rede- velopment areas using a grid or modified grid pattern that is convenient and interesting for pedestrians. C2.19 Where creating smaller blocks is not feasible, use public walkways and Rights-of-Way to effectively link residential areas to neighbour- hood amenities such as transit stops, shops, parks, schools and greenways.
