Wayfinding

Description

Our Wayfinding Project will install new signs around town to help drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians get around our city in the most efficient way possible. The signs help direct people to downtown, public parking, the Caltrain station and other important locations in San Carlos.

A Steering Committee of commissioners, staff, and Hunt Design, a consulting firm specializing in wayfinding sign design, lead this effort. Community input is important for this project to succeed.


Status

The City is currently getting ready to begin the next phase of the Wayfinding Project. In the next phase, the City will begin the development of design-intent fabrication and installation drawings. Once this is completed, the City will be able to begin collecting quotations from potential vendors to construct and install the signs.
