The City of Ventnor has a rich and diverse heritage. As a family-friendly and ecologically rich community, Ventnor City provides its residents and visitors with a high quality of life in a laid-back beach environment. The city has long recognized the importance of creating safe and pedestrian-friendly streets. This has led to many initiatives ranging from on-street bicycle lanes to a pedestrian and bicycle safety plan. Creating a safe and inviting pedestrian environment along Atlantic Avenue is key to the long-term economic and environmental sustainability of the city. The goal of the improvements is to create a safe and inviting pedestrian environment while also reinforcing a sense of community through placemaking.


Arterial teamed with Marathon Engineering to analyze a 3-block corridor of Atlantic Avenue that has seen investment from the local community and business owners. A series of recommendations were outlined to create an inviting, safe pedestrian environment, while enhancing the local character of the place. A concept plan was developed that included a number of improvements ranging from corner bump-outs and wooden platforms to new lighting, street furniture, sidewalks, public art, street trees and other elements.
