New Wayfinding Signage Installed

Some residents may have noticed the City's 16 bold new wayfinding signs and 4 maps in and near Town Center installed recently...
Designed in 2017 with community and Chamber of Commerce stakeholder input, and expert consultant support, these signs were funded by a $25,000 Port of Seattle Economic Development Grant, with the City's matching contribution being field crew labor.
Using uniform messaging and clear visuals, the signs are intended
to direct visiting motorists to the Town Center and other key locations, as well as guide pedestrians and bicyclists from the Mountains-to-Sound (
I-90) regional trail to local amenities, businesses, and attractions. Many of these visitors traversing
Aubrey Davis Park
do not realize how close services are to the trail.
Existing signage was very limited, small, low-contrast, and in many cases had simply disappeared over the past 20-30 years.
