Ahoy! Your one-stop-shop to review ‘Rockton Downtown Streetscape Master Plan’ resources, documents, and news highlights.
Thanks to everyone who has provided input. The following strategies have been developed to guide the streetscape planning:
Strategy #1: REINFORCE DOWNTOWN STREETS AS THE HISTORIC AND CULTURAL CENTER OF ROCKTON
- Evaluate opportunities to balance existing roadway/on-street parking functions with widened sidewalks and active seating/dining areas.
Strategy #2: PROMOTE ROCKTON’S IMAGE AND FUNCTION THROUGH SIGNAGE
- Create a comprehensive signage program that addresses gateway, wayfinding, parking and business directory signage
Strategy #3: REINFORCE FESTIVAL SPACES
- Accommodate a variety of fest types, including large format events at Settlers Park, and smaller format events on Main and/or Hawick Streets.
Strategy #4: ENHANCE OFF STREET PARKING AND ALLEYWAY CONNECTIONS
- Improve off street parking functions and alleyway connectivity through design treatments.
Strategy #5: : IMPROVE CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN DOWNTOWN AND RIVERFRONT
- Provide interconnected experiences that draw users between Downtown and Riverfront. Experiential elements may include interconnected pathways, crosswalks, sidewalks, seating/ gathering areas, river overlooks, passive open space, active play and interpretive landscaping.
