Using a term only government and consultants could love, new "wayfinding" designs will be on display tonight (Wednesday, Dec. 12) at the downtown library. City officials are hoping the public and elected/appointed officials (who are, after all, also members of the public) will weigh in on the various ideas.
"Wayfinding," by the way, is another way of saying "signs."
"The goal of the wayfinding system 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," according to a city press release.
Members of the City Council and all the appointed commissions and committees have officially noticed their attendance at tonight's open house so that they can join the public in weighing in on some sign design and location options.
Hunt Design, a Pasadena-based company that specializes in signage and wayfinding, has been working with city staff and "community stakeholders" to put together the options that will be on display tonight. Members of Hunt Design will explain the science of wayfinding, and the wayfinding committee will be on hand to answer questions.
The open house is from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Oak Room at the Civic Library.
