Streetscape

Streetscaping team members provide planters and plant materials to help "soften" downtown's public right-of-ways. Taking a cue from the River Walk, these improvements help enhance the pedestrian experience for our many downtown workers, residents, and visitors:
  • The District has added over 600 planters on light poles, on stair rails between street level and the River Walk, and in clusters of large planters throughout the District.
  • The Streetscaping team also use a "Tiger Truck" to assist them in watering and maintaining the District’s planters.
  • Additonal planter clusters have been added to Alamo Plaza, paid for by private donors and maintained by the Streetscaping team. Centro SA will continue to seek sponsorships like this for various locations around the District.
In the future, the District will also explore the possible addition of street furniture such as benches, trash receptacles and directional signage at key locations. The District is responsible for maintaining any physical improvements that it provides. This includes watering, fertilization and replacing seasonal vegetation as necessary. The Streetscaping team program intends to expand in scope each year, as funds are available.
