Abstract

Today, one of the main priorities of designers and urban planners is attention to the concept of citizens’ security and methods for its enhancement. This is the most important issue to improve the street access network and traffic congestion. As a result, the physical design of Allameh Majlesi Street in Isfahan and its environmental security enhancement are considered crucial in urban space for the welfare of the citizens. This paper has implemented a descriptive-analytic research methodology. The statistical population in this study is all the citizens in the Allameh Majlesi Street of Isfahan. According to Morgan table, 196 people were selected as the study sample. The data collection was through a questionnaire, observations and on-site interviews; decision making was done using the SWOT technique. Three alternative designs were proposed which were evaluated through the AHP technique to select the best alternative. The physical design of safe urban environment against damages was based on criteria to improve the sense of security, utilizing natural elements, environmental quality, and redefining the physical elements. As a result, after evaluating the options, the third alternative was selected based on the index.
