PACO COUNTY FLORIDA

US 19 MEDIANS LANDSCAPE RENOVATION PROJECT

STREETSCAPES / URBAN DESIGN

 Selected by Pasco County, working under Ayres and Associates – We have been engaged to design 16 miles of landscape within the medians in the center of the US19 corridor.  Numerous challenges in the project are present including all the FDOT safety requirements as well as the respect of the Outdoor Advertisings who own literally hundreds of billboards that affect the project visibility.  The plant palette also had to be flexible, as the design requirement of the County Commissioners is to keep this in the “Coastal Theme”.  We have to also respect the various microclimates found from one end of the County to the other as well as keeping a variety of design themes to differentiate between the various neighborhood segments in the corridor. Project is on a three year phased construction and funding program.
