Site improvements consist of water, storm and sewer utilities that tie into existing public utilities. The site improvements also include Overton Park Standards, resort-style hardscaping, landscaping, irrigation, additional street parking, asphalt paving, and Overton Park Standard concrete sidewalks with brick ribbon banding.
