Automated way to snap polygons to a polyline layer

Good Morning-

I am looking for an automated way to snap a polygon layer which represents subdivisions to a polyline layer which represents a street network.  My polygon layer represents tens of thousands of subdivisions so the manual snapping represents a serious time investment.  Using the Integrate tool is not an option because I only want the polygon layer to move and not the street layer.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you set a geodatabase topology, you can give priority to one layer over others when vertices need to be moved.  I would use copies just in case, or do the validation in an edit session so they can be reversed if the priority isn't followed as you want.  ET Geowizards has a global snap wizard that may do what you want, but I believe that is one of the paid tools.
