152 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Veterans Boulevard CPZ Beautification Project Metairie, Louisiana Design of the Veterans Blvd. Commercial Parkway Overlay Zone (CPZ) Beautification Project began in 2006. Serving as the main commercial district for Metaire, Louisiana, the six-lane roadway contains a major drainage system of open canals and underground box culverts. The final design included landscape beautification, decorative walls and planters, landscape lighting, irrigation and public artwork. The first three sculptures for the project were part of a long-term loan from the New Orleans Museum of Art. Popularity of the project quickly spread, and many residents of the region donated additional artwork, while Jefferson Parish created a program to include sculptures by local artists. The project currently includes 14 sculptures, with more planned for the future. Linfield, Hunter & Junius Metairie, Louisiana Linfield, Hunter and Junius, Inc.
