Lower Polk Streetscape Improvements

Project Information LowerPolk_Workers
In early 2006, the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development, the Planning Department, Department of Public Works and the Mayor’s Office of City Greening conducted community workshops to determine the needs of the Lower Polk Street neighborhood. Through the collaborative community planning process, businesses and residents along the corridor identified improvements that would make Polk Street a greener, cleaner and a more inviting environment. 
 

Improvements include lighting upgrades, new street trees, and sidewalk planters with trees where sub-sidewalk basements occur. For more information, download the Lower Polk Streetscape Improvement Project Factsheet (PDF).
