This page is for discussing the contents of Navigating Davis.

Just made this last night as a result of a conversation with a friend, and thought it should go on DavisWiki: Not sure if it really belongs in this article or if I should look for another place to put it? —AndrewHudson

How about United States of Davis? It doesn't exist yet, but it could. -jw

Great idea! —cp

Since there's a section for City Streets, shouldn't there be a section for Campus Streets or UC Davis Campus Streets? There's an option of listing campus streets on Campus, but as Campus is a neighborhood and none of the other neighborhoods list their streets, listing streets on Campus would break precedent. I've added a partial list of campus streets to Streets. —BruceHansen

  • Campus streets should be included on Streets. It doesn't need to be separate. I'm not sold on adding campus streets to this page simply because they aren't that relevant to navigating Davis. We have major roads listed here. You can't drive on campus, and every road/bike path on campus is more or less a major road. You use whatever's convenient to get from point A to point B. If including major on-campus roads would actually add something to this page's value for those trying to navigate Davis, great. If it's just for the sake of listing streets, then no, they shouldn't be added. —TomGarberson
  • I'd actually say either place is appropriate. Although the campus is a neighborhood, it is an exception in the sense of being mostly autonomous and having its own police force, etc. It is more of an independent entity rather than an actual sub-division of Davis that one normally thinks of a neighborhood. Campus is probably a more appropriate place for listing these streets because Navigating Davis is more for major roads, as Tom points out. Or maybe a Navigating Campus page would be in order?- SM
    • There are a lot of campus streets that are accessible by car — core campus, west campus and south campus. I like the idea of a new page because a list of ~30 streets would take up a lot of space on Campus. -bh

This edit of TG's seems to cover everything that needs to be done for this page, i.e., the Navigating Davis page. It is consistent with the other sections on the page in that it highlights the major streets. I don't think anything further needs to be done on this page. I don't think Campus should be mucked with by adding lists of streets. I think it's find to list the campus streets on Streets. —CovertProfessor

Just limiting talk to this article, I agree with Tom's Campus, except that it should be changed from a subheading to a heading and the name should be changed to UCD Campus. Campus streets aren't City Streets, except City street A Street can be included, as Tom did.

TG has fixed this "problem" by changing the heading to Surface Streets. —cp

The distinction between city and campus streets is meaningless for anything except categorization. It doesn't matter whether it's technically on university property or not, or who does the maintenance. This page is about navigating Davis, not about classifying streets. I changed it to "surface streets," which is hopefully sufficiently broad to encompass everything, in the hopes of not having this issue waste hours and hours of editor time. —TomGarberson

There is a difference between City streets and Davis streets. Davis Streets include City streets and campus streets. The Surface Streets is good because it includes Outskirts? as well as the others. -bh

So, then you agree with the edit. Good. We don't have to discuss that aspect of the edit any further. —CovertProfessor

I still think a Navigating Campus or a Getting Around Campus would be well worth doing if it hasn't been touched on already. In addition to listing campus streets and shortcuts, there are a lot of little useful tips that could be shared, such as how 99 percent of bicyclists fail to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. - SM

It's certainly a worthwhile topic to have covered. I'm guessing it already is fairly well covered, but it's probably spread out across quite a few pages. Compiling that info in a useful way would be good (as distinguished from a list of streets). —tg

  • Agreed. -SM
  • Yes. Page with content good; simple list of streets, bad. I agree that much of the content is probably in different places on the wiki already, so assemblers of that content would want to take advantage of the work that has been done. —cp

Change Campus to UCD Campus. Have what's there now be major navigation. Have another subsection for Scott's idea. Have another subsection for a list of campus streets or some arrangement that would include the names of all the streets, which doesn't exist anywhere on this wiki. -bh


No. —cp

I have started to list them there, but there are many that aren't listed yet. There's no way by looking at the streets list to know which of the streets are campus streets. -bh

So add them. "Campus streets" isn't a thing. They're streets. Why does this distinction need to be made? —tg

I've said that none of the Neighborhoods list their streets so far. I think that it's good information to list the UCD Campus Neighborhood streets somehow distinctly. -bh

Why? —tg

No. —cp

I couldn't say this soon after my last comment, because I was offline: I won't put them here. Navigating Davis isn't the page for full listings of streets, at this time anyway. I don't knw how involved the navigation instructions will become in the future. -bh

What is this I don't even

I'm glad that the Campus has maps. They do have to be enlarged to see the streets. Downtown and the Outskirts don't have maps; it would be good if they did. -bh
