What is a streetscape?

A streetscape is a public improvement project that will enhance the public area and trigger subsequent recovery and investment in surrounding neighborhoods. This development is designed to help create additional and continued private investment in New Orleans key recovery areas. The streetscape is designed to benefit the surrounding neighborhood residents, business owners and visitors by providing amenities that contribute to economic vitality. Streetscape projects enhance the area surrounding the actual roadway, but do not include roadway repair or reconstruction.
Streetscapes can include: 
  • Sidewalk, bikeway, driveway and other pedestrian surface walkway improvements
  • Traffic and pedestrian signalization and signage
  • Landscaping
  • Lighting
  • Public Art
  • Pocket park improvements
  • Minor utility modifications and improvements
