Public input sought on latest wayfinding signage project

wayfinding

In a continuing effort to establish and enhance Roswell’s wayfinding signage to guide residents and travelers to popular public destinations, the City of Roswell is working with a landscape-architecture design company to further develop the city’s plan to expand its network of signs to direct people to key facilities and other locations. 

Roswell citizens are encouraged to be part of this important process by contributing their input through a survey that can be taken on the project website. The survey will be open until May 14. In addition, local residents can attend a virtual public meeting to discuss the wayfinding project May 11 from noon to 1 p.m. The link to attend the meeting is found on the website

The current project will build on the work done by previous wayfinding projects, with all these efforts being drawn together with the goal of creating the most effective and attractive means to guide residents and travelers to sites including government buildings, educational and healthcare facilities, museums, parks, trails, sports facilities, public transportation stops and other points of interest. Roswell has many unique and engaging resources and destinations, and this plan will better connect residents and visitors to everything Roswell has to offer. The intent is to have the wayfinding plan establish consistent and cohesive design standards for wayfinding signage while celebrating the community’s history and identity.

The City of Roswell is developing the plan with the assistance of a team led by Albuquerque-based Groundwork Studio, which has worked with communities throughout New Mexico, and its sub-consultant Alta Planning + Design, a nationally recognized wayfinding and active-transportation design and planning firm.
