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.
The first phase of this project has been implemented as follows:
- decorative fencing
- curbed planters
- ornamental grasses
- flower pots
