- Encourage pedestrian, bicycle and transit use.
- Encourage diversification of uses, including residential, commercial, and civic uses, in order to enhance the vitality and appeal of these areas.
- Maintain the viability of existing residential buildings located within or adjacent to these corridors.
- Encourage appropriate transitions between higher-intensity uses within TSS districts and adjacent lower-density residential districts.
