Redwood City Downtown “Wayfinding” Project Underway, Community Asked to Comment
Redwood City, CA - September 8 , 2005 - With many new visitors to Redwood City – and many, many thousands more expected with next year’s opening of the retail-cinema project – Redwood City is anticipating a lot of questions: How do I get downtown from the highway? Where’s Broadway? Is the Museum over there? Where can I park?
To make it easy for people to find their way around, Redwood City is embarking on a “Wayfinding” project. This is a program designed to help visitors find their way into and around Downtown Redwood City. With distinctive, strategically-placed signs and maps, and an elegant graphic image, this program will provide an attractive appearance and character that will be unique to Redwood City.
The “Wayfinding” program will become part of the Downtown identity, so it’s crucially important for the community to be involved. The City is inviting all interested members of the public to attend a downtown community workshop, where the City will present the progress on this project to date and gain the insight, opinions, and suggestions of participants:
Wednesday September 14 ~ 6:30 pm
Community Room, Main Library
1044 Middlefield Road, Redwood City
The City’s “Wayfinding” sign strategy and schematic design have been developed, and staff is asking for the community’s help in refining the conceptual design. More information is available by calling 780-7263.
