The streetscape elements include, but are not limited to:
- street lighting
- street trees
- street furniture
- public art
- public signage
The Committee will advise the Project Team on the scope of work for the project and on engineering design issues that have direct implications on the street’s function and aesthetic qualities in particular storm water quality facilities and traffic design.
The Committee will advise the Project Team during the construction phase regarding construction traffic management and impacts as well as any possible design changes occurring after the engineering phase.
Lastly, Committee members should be available to assist with communicating aspects of the project to other stakeholders including property owners, business owners and tenants, and residents. Committee members may also help to communicate aspects of the project to the Lake Grove Business Association, adjacent neighborhood associations and the City Council.
