Visible Open Space (public/private)
Public and private open space, that is visible from the public right-of-way, can provide places for people to expand their living space outside and meet their neighbors and community. These areas can help promote community activities and make people feel comfortable walking around.
Open spaces can be designed as active spaces and provide locations for people to rest, gather, or play. Vibrant open spaces full of people can provide social and economic benefit for adjacent businesses and services. Passive open spaces can be designed to enhance or create natural elements that provide habitat or stormwater management along the right-of-way and well as opportunities for education.
