this map looks like a combination of an air photo and polygons that represent different features.

First create individual feature classes for each type of feature.

From what I can see here I would say building, sidewalks and it looks like roads.

You can also create a polyline feature for the roads as well to make it easier to label.

You open your air  photo first.  Then in an edit session you start to draw in your buildings based on the outline of the buildings in the air photo.

Drawing the sidewalks like the image is the same but a little more tricky.  I would draw portions of the sidewalks so you can leave the open areas open then just merge them together when you are done.

It also looks like the drew in the roads. 

What I do for roads like this is I draw a center line down the middle of the road. I then include a column to designate the width of the road as measured from the center line.  i.e. a 60 foot wide road would measure 30 feel from center.  I then buffer the roads based on the road width field.

Looking closer like under the Pauley Pavilion ( they spelled it Pavillion on their map) it looks like they drew some features in with lines.

What are you trying to change the color on?

I think it would me the most simple to simply add an air photo background.

if you click on the drop down arrow on the add data button.. Yellow Triangle with a Plus sign.  Go to Add Basemap and you will see the option to add air photography.

If you add your buildings or some other part of your map first it will add the air photography as a back ground.

Either of the first two should suffice.  Depends on if you want labels or not for the streets.  You can work with any of them and switch them out as you go to see which one works best.  They are all georeferenced so they will all fit.
