Design/Materials Standards

Developing design and materials standards, such as environmentally friendly sidewalk materials, could improve the pedestrian environment and encourage more people to walk. Additionally, developing standards for various types of green materials would enable residents to access a greater variety of materials, particularly important in situations where the City cannot currently fund pedestrian improvements.
