Streets and their often accompanying sidewalks have a myriad of uses. Streetscaping refers to how a street interacts with its surrounding environment and maximizes those uses. Streetscaping can unlock value and vitality from a street by maximizing its purpose not just as a tool for moving motor vehicles around, but for fostering economic activity, defining a community’s aesthetic quality, and creating appealing community identity. Through various means streetscaping can promote outdoor dining and activity, accommodate public art and landscaping, and even encourage traffic flow at certain speeds.
