WALNUT CREEK -- The city is working on a coordinated citywide sign system, to help residents fine everything from parks to parking, and residents' observations on preliminary plans will be welcome Wednesday night at an open house from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Oak View Room of the main library, 1644 N. Broadway downtown.
Visitors will be able to comment on several designs being considered as part of the city's "wayfinding" project. Its goal is to make it easier for residents and visitors alike to find everything from parking to parks though an organized system of coordinated directional signs.
A committee of city staff and community members has been working with Hunt Design, a Pasadena-based firm, to develop a draft wayfinding plan that includes proposed sign locations, destinations to be included on signs and design possibilities.
Open House attendees can view full-size mock-ups of the various designs and get information about the science behind wayfinding from Hunt Design. Wayfinding steering committee members will also be on hand to answer questions and solicit feedback.
