Street Furniture

Planter StripStreet furniture refers to objects placed within the streetscape. The Right-of-Way Improvements Manual provides the following examples of street furnishings: benches, litter and recycling receptacles, bike racks, multiple publication newsstands, water fountains, pedestrian scaled lighting and planters. Public art includes art instillations that have a functional component and art that is purely aesthetic. Some types of street furnishings such as automated pay toilets, public kiosks and other atypical amenities are referred to as Unique Objects because they require special location and design considerations (4.25).
