When selecting the final materials for the new streetscape, the Village staff and board will consider several important factors such as aesthetic, cost, durability, maintenance and public opinion.
In addition to testing materials, the Village board and staff are working on the overall streetscape design. The Capital Improvements Commission (CIC) and the Village Board met recently to evaluate several important streetscape design elements. In addition to reviewing sidewalk width and parking layouts, the project team is exploring possible flex street designs at key locations. A flex street prioritizes pedestrians and allows for more space for events and outdoor dining, when needed.
