Projects Urban Pockets Criteria
This technical study evaluated 42 unincorporated urban pockets in Stanislaus County in order to identify areas most appropriate for annexation to an incorporated City. The evaluation analyzed the costs of public improvements required to meet City infrastructure standards as well as the benefits to residents that will result from the construction of improvements and annexation to an incorporated City.
Factors under review include infrastructure cost per resident, improvements to pedestrian circulation, health and safety public benefits as well as coordination with planned infrastructure projects. Interwest’s Planning team is continuously working hand-in-hand with Interwest’s Engineering/Public Works team on this multi-disciplinary study.
This project won the Best Practices Award of Excellence by the American Planning Association – Central Section. Read more about this amazing achievement here.
