Streetscaping is compatible with several elements of planning for Complete Communities in Delaware, including Complete Streets  and efficient land use. The Urban Street Design Guide  by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) reinforces the need to design spaces where people can safely walk, bicycle, drive, take transit, and mingle. Well-designed and maintained streetscapes create comfortable, beautiful streets that fit in with Complete Streets principles. All elements and principles aim to create a destination that will entice drivers to park, walk into town and enjoy the community. In addition to accommodating a range of transportation options, streetscaping supports revitalization initiatives, sustainability, and a mix of efficient land uses that includes retail, living space, recreation, and office space.
