St. George Streetscape Improvements 2013-2019

The 2013 St George Streetscape Improvement Plan provides for a series of short term streetscape improvement projects. The identified projects have been selected for reasons such as: immediate impact requiring minimal infrastructure improvements to the street while building edge to strengthen the pedestrian space.

The design elements to establish the ‘edge’ include: cast-in-place concrete curbed planters, decorative metal fencing, ornamental grasses, bulbs and the integration of edible herbs and plants over time as a pilot project.  A standardized black, metal fence has been selected to emphasize the delineation of the pedestrian space and the ornamental grasses will change through the seasons softening the fence.

In August/September 2014, the first of the five-year project will be implemented ; this includes Parking Lot Screening (north and south side of St. George Street) as follows:

  • decorative fencing
  • curbed planters
  • ornamental grasses
