About the Streetscape Manual
The project will produce a document that identifies the specifications (type, size, color, etc.) and locations of all streetscape elements in City’s public right-of-way, including notes on installation and vendor options. The Streetscape Manual does not set new policy or revise regulations and standards, but rather codifies the City’s existing policies, decisions, and practices that relate to improving and maintaining streetscapes in Takoma Park. The Manual is intended to be updated annually, incorporating new products, policies, and practices that are adopted or initiated on a project basis.
Current Project Status
The Takoma Park Streetscape Manual was adopted by City Council Resolution on July 20, 2016.
In November of 2019, the City’s Planning Division created an interactive web map which displays the updated locations and conditions of all Streetscape objects. Individual Streetcape features can be turned on/off under the Content section in the left window pane. Clicking on a Streetscape object will open a pop-up window displaying all data for that object.
In December of 2019 the City began working to update the physical version of the Streetscape Manual and plans to complete the update by Winter 2020.
The update to the physical version of the Streetscape Manual was completed in January of 2021.
