Streetscape Standards and Guidelines

The City designs, constructs, and maintains our streets, sidewalks, bridges, and structures for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.

The City works to balance the needs of all street users, and design accessible streets and sidewalks. By doing this, we help to create a vibrant community experience on our streets.

Great streets require:

  • Visual and environmental enhancements, like street trees and boulevards
  • Inclusive elements that provide accessibility to everyone: those with mobility issues, walkers, cyclists, businesses moving goods, and drivers
  • High quality solutions that last, from paving materials, to street fixtures and amenities

The design of most of our streets is guided by the Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw.

However, several areas of the City have special streetscape treatments to help create unique character in our neighbourhoods.  Supplemental streetscape guidelines have been developed for:
