Community Workshop on “Wayfinding” Downtown Signage Program

Redwood City, CA - February 2, 2006 -Wayfinding” is the ability of a person to find his or her way to a given destination. With the many improvements and new destinations being created in Redwood City’s Downtown, well over one million new visits annually are expected – and many will come with questions:

  • How do I get downtown from the highway?
  • Where’s Broadway? I
  • Is the Museum over there?
  • Where’s the Fox Theater?
  • Where can I park?

To make it easy for people to find their way around, Redwood City has embarked 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 join a lively discussion on refining and incorporating Downtown Wayfinding signage and image elements, scheduled for:

  • Thursday, February 9, 2006 ~ 7 pm – 8:30 pm
    Downtown Library, Community Room (upstairs)
    1044 Middlefield Road, Redwood City
