Venetian Islands Streetscape

 

The VIGOB is a mid-Miami Beach neighborhood general obligation bond project for streetscape, water main and drainage improvements. Our role was to master plan and prepare street designs for the revised street layout/reconfiguration and signage. The master plan’s major thrust was to call for narrowing streets to facilitate three goals: 1) traffic calming; 2) improve drainage; and 3) increase green space. A number of meetings resulted in creating consensus to target various improvements, i.e. planting, lighting, and sidewalk installation/repair.
