2019 Collaboration on Wayfinding Sign Changes

in Updates

In September of 2019, the Historical Society submitted a request to FOVEC to update the Wayfinding signs for the purpose of directing people towards the Historical Society and the Founders Monument.

In collaboration with Kathy Bryan from SAC DOT Traffic Signs & Marking Department, FOVEC was able to identify the original specification document from 2009 for all 17 signs in the Village. We were also given a digital copy of the document for our library.

A quick check through the Village found that two signs were missing and two had been graffitied. Our analysis of the sign locations and space for additional lettering suggested that only two signs could be modified without a lot of effort.

Kathy’s department cleaned the graffitied signs and was able to add lettering to two signs to meet the Historical Society request. As for the missing signs, Kathy’s department found a blank Wayfinding sign in their inventory and Daneece Frazier (owner of EJ's Little People) found another one in her home.

These two blank signs were used to recreate the missing signs located near the entrance to the Village on Fair Oaks Blvd & Howard, and on Bridge Street & Temescal as you come up from the river.

Thanks to the collaboration between the Historical Society, FOVEC, and SAC DOT all of the work was completed before Thanksgiving and at no cost.
