The Topic

The City of Stillwater is seeking input on how the streetscaping should look in the area to the east and south of the OSU campus. This is everything within the right-of-way, typically including the sidewalk, landscaping, curb & gutter and the street. The overall goal is to help provide a catalyst for additional redevelopment in the area.

The purpose of the streetscaping project is to further the zoning principles that focus more on how a property is developed (the character of development) and less on what a property is used for (the proposed or desired use). The project area is east, south, and southeast of Oklahoma State University and is seen as a way to promote redevelopment opportunities and encourage mixed-use development within the area.

This first phase of the project is to gather input regarding how to design a palette of four streetscape types for the area; which runs from Mathews to 6th and Washington to Husband Streets. The City envisions a mix of lighting, landscaping, and amenities designed to create a unique place within Stillwater. The second phase will take the ideas generated and develop a conceptual streetscape plan for the area.

Our streets need proper lane structure more than anything ornamental. We have four lane roads with no center turning lanes, leading to entie lanes of vehicles at a standstill waiting for someone to make a left turn in heavy traffic. Depending on traffic density, this can take anywhere from a few seconds, to five or ten minutes in some cases. By fixing the flow of traffic and adding the center lanes, the city will be more navigable, and will need to be implemented if we want these landscaping and development goals done at all. This is a higher priority.

(1) I would like to see improved access to alternate forms of transportation. We need to make bike lanes and pedestrian walkways a priority. (2) Free parking in "satellite" lots located in non-congested areas with tram or bus service to this area would make it more accessible. (3) Please include trees, trees and more trees to provide shade in hot weather and beauty all year long. (4) Introduce energy efficient and/or environmentally friendly technology wherever possible and include signage to educate and increase public awareness of its importance. (5) Put in place stricter codes for the appearances of private properties. Property owners, especially landlords, can contribute to streetscape improvement everywhere in Stillwater by cleaning up their land and buildings.

Protected bike lanes, expanded sidewalks and landscaping should be key. I would also like to see better signage for key places and wayfinding in Stillwater. Bike lane example one: https://momentummag.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/FEAT_SepLanes_onewaycycletrack_planters-Courtesy-NACTO_web.jpgBike lane example two:https://ggwash.org/images/made/images/posts/_resized/wave1_800_600_90.jpgWayfinding signage examples the city created in 2005 (However, I would like to see this all updated): http://stillwater.org/files/master-plans/Wayfinding-Program-Document.pdf

Any proposed plans should include bike infrastructure as a forethought - NOT an afterthought! It will be a waste of money to include bike lanes if they are just shoehorned into a busy intersection that scares off new/infrequent riders.

Signage is going to be an important part of the streetscape look. We should invest in well made and visually pleasing signage that integrates with lighting. Example: https://signaturestreetscapes.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/about-us-picture-right-3-1.jpg
