Streetscape design standards were developed to address environmental considerations, neighborhood speeding, traffic reduction, and neighborhood livability.
The public street improvement permit program supports new development / re-development projects. The City requires developers to make certain public street improvements in conjunction with construction projects on private property.
The LID is a method that allows a group of property owners to share the cost of street improvements. In addition, the City provides a long-term, low-interest financing to help property owners pay for improvements in a manner that they can afford.
The substandard street improvement permit allows residents of an existing neighborhood to grade and/or pave their street.
