The "streetscape" is the area in the public realm between private property lines or the exteriors of buildings and the curb or street. This is the area that people see as they drive or bike by or experience as they walk along the sidewalks. Businesses and properties adjacent to the sidewalk help shape the experience and can benefit from improvements to the streetscape or sidewalk area.
The following goals were shaped by various downtown stakeholders as the City prepared to embark upon this effort.
Many cities strive to make improvements to their sidewalks and streetscapes for the following reasons. Sidewalks provide a venue that shape how residents shop, work, and experience their city. In downtowns, this can be even more important.
A place for people
A place that works
A place that feels
