STREETSCAPE
Streetscape is a combination of street, sidewalk, and building base:
Main Street

Hoover Street Elevation

• Plan for a hierarchy of street types, recognizing vehicular capacity, adjacent land use, and building edge • Pedestrian pathways provide wide sidewalks that accentuate street furniture, street trees, outdoor dining (where appropriate) and articulation of storefronts

JEFFERSON BOULEVARD TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS
Enhancements to Jefferson Boulevard will be beneficial to the community while producing minimal change in day-to-day traffic capacity.
Existing Jefferson Blvd. Views

• Four lanes of traffic plus a turn or median lane exist now and will continue to exist after renovation • Designated bike paths will replace the parallel parking, promoting a safer environment for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists • Sidewalks will be widened creating a more pedestrian friendly street crossing experience and allowing more space for streetscape enhancements
