City, Valley Metro to conduct historic streetscape study

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, City of Phoenix] — Staff of the City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office met with Valley Metro’s light rail staff and consultants to map out an historic streetscape study that the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is requiring Valley Metro to complete as partial mitigation for the light rail project and its impacts to the historic streetscape along Central Avenue.

As part of this study, a lunch forum will be held on October 2, 2008 at the Carnegie Library, 99 S. 12th Avenue, with landscape architects, other design professionals, and interested parties to collect information about the elements that define different streetscape types found in the city and to discuss appropriate and inappropriate changes to historic streetscapes.
