Naperville’s downtown has been built with various standards and streetscape designs incorporated at different times throughout its history. Streetscapes have generally been improved on a development level with a handful of City-led projects, such as the 1978 Jefferson Avenue streetscape improvements.

The Downtown Dig will rebuild sections of the downtown streetscape to standards endorsed by the Downtown Advisory Commission and approved by City Council on June 4, 2019 with updates that will improve pedestrian mobility, accessibility and safety in this area.
