Hi. I'm trying to edit polygons and would like to set a width. Is that possible?

What I'm working on is digitizing a university campus using air photos. The roads, walkways, and sidewalks are stored as polygon features. If I simply edit, it makes it hard to stay consistent, especially when there is a turn. I think my edit would look much better if I were able to set a width to my polygons, IE sidewalks must have a width of 5 feet. Does anyone know if this is a possible option?
