"Scott Day was really helpful because [he] commented on the [store's] name and about how it should convey a more fun, colorful, kid sound. He also talked about what we could do to change our windows and that we shouldn't have all of our bestsellers right as you walk in. As a result, sales have gone up in the last few months, especially for toys and books."

Streetscape Plan Review

The goal of this visit is to develop or review a preliminary concept plan for public improvements.  Usually a three-day tech visit to give recommendations and establish priorities in the areas of:

  • Parking lot improvements;
  • Streetscape amenities  such as lighting, seating, pavement, trash receptacles, pavement, communications, etc.;
  • Public gathering and performance areas;
  • Proper location for trees;
  • Developing funding for public improvements;
  • Streetscape maintenance;
  • Traffic analysis and traffic calming techniques that might be employed;
  • Selecting the right type of designer for your streetscape, and exploring the difference between an architect, landscape architect, engineer, civil engineer, landscape contractor, and what the proper role for each professional might be in relation to the community’s needs; and
  • Managing and promoting downtown during a public improvements project.
