Great Streets Master Plan

The Downtown Austin Alliance, a non-profit organization of property owners, initiated interest in developing a Great Streets Program to revitalize the pedestrian experience downtown. In 2000, the City of Austin hired Black & Vernooy/Kinney Assoc. to prepare a Great Streets Master Plan. The plan included circulation patterns, street typologies, streetscape elements and standards, and implementation plans. Ms. McKinney was responsible for the design of streetscape elements and standards, including street trees, soil profiles, irrigation components, tree grates and guards, planters, waste receptacles, drinking fountains, benches, bicycle racks, and paving.
