Great Streets Make Great Cities

Streetscape design has economic impacts, and with city budgets often tight, the promise of economic benefits can provide an especially persuasive argument in favor of improvements to sidewalks, street trees, and bikeways. This panel will discuss the impacts cities have seen to businesses, neighborhoods, and even whole regions as a result of streetscape improvements, covering topics such as methods used to measure benefits; ways to use this information to build support among stakeholders such as community and business leaders; and how to coordinate private and public investments to best support one another.
