Streetscaping can help attract new customers to a community’s downtown businesses or enhance the aesthetics of a main thoroughfare. Ciorba Group teams with highly-qualified landscape architects to develop and prepare contract documents for streetscape improvements. Reducing impervious areas, creating curbed landscape islands, installing energy efficient lighting and improving stormwater quality are all elements for the “green” design of a new roadway. Ciorba’s streetscape projects have involved the use of brick pavers,  landscaped medians and planters, irrigation systems, decorative lighting with banners and wayfinding signage.

Street “diets” can be implemented to provide the needed space for new streetscaping elements as well as improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Coordination with residents, community leaders, and other stakeholders is extremely important to understand current needs and to introduce potential community identifying themes into a project.
