Micro-scale design (MSD) is a term that has been coined recently by transportation and land use planners to describe the human-scale features of the built environment. This concept focuses on accessibility to desired activities rather than on mobility; the latter requires more transportation facility capacity. MSD describes the physical features of development at the level-of-detail of a neighborhood or a single building site. MSD features are concerned with bicycle, pedestrian, and transit access-oriented facilities such as: Sidewalks and other streetscape features; Bikeways; Building orientation and location; Parking facilities; Pedestrian and transit amenities and Other features that stimulate and support non-motorized travel activities.
