Streetscape Standards and Guidelines

The City designs, constructs, and maintains streets, sidewalks, bridges, and structures for pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles. The City works to balance the needs of all street users, and designs accessible streets and sidewalks to help create a vibrant community experience:

  • Visual and environmental enhancements, like street trees and boulevards
  • Inclusive elements that provide accessibility to everyone: Those with mobility issues, walkers, cyclists, businesses moving goods, and drivers
  • High quality solutions that last, from paving materials to street fixtures and amenities

The City has supplemental streetscape guidelines for several areas with special streetscape treatments, to help create unique character in our neighbourhoods:
