PUBLIC REALM

 In an urban environment, streets are not just about moving cars but also about connecting people with each other and with their surroundings.

Our Downtown streetscapes and public spaces must be attractive, functional and safe. From smaller scale projects such as bike lane planter pots, dog waste bag dispensers, holiday decorations, and street pole banners to large scale capital improvements such as Pine Avenue Refresh and The Loop at Pine + Ocean, the DLBA’s Streetscapes and Public Spaces projects are improving the function and aesthetics of our downtown streets.

Placemaking

Our placemaking efforts seek to draw on the social and cultural assets of the DTLB community in order to create unique and memorable public spaces. Working with the Public Realm Committee, stakeholders, and community partners, the DLBA engages in placemaking projects both large and small, from tree plantings to new public gathering spaces.
