Streetscape & Urban Design

The city's streetscape and design standards are meant to serve as a guiding tool to be used by the City, private developers and property owners to steer future strategic development in a consistent, thoughtful and professional manner. These standards also aim to protect neighborhood character, enhance coordination among City departments and promote economic development.
