CLEARWATER – Do you have trouble finding what you’re looking for when driving on U.S. 19 N?
Clearwater feels your frustration and is trying to come up with a solution to make it easier to navigate the roadways and easily reach points of interest on the seven-mile segment of U.S. 19 N that’s inside the city.
The city and its consultant, wayfinding and signage expert MERJE of West Chester, PA, will hold a public meeting to present the preliminary design concepts for the wayfinding and signage plan for the U.S. 19 corridor in Clearwater from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday (May 18) at the Clarion Inn & Suites, 20967 U.S. 19 N. The formal presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. Members of the city’s Planning and Development Department and MERJE will be available to answer questions from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
MERJE staff will explain the city’s wayfinding and signage project and present preliminary designs for a holistic wayfinding and signage approach for the seven-mile stretch of the U.S. 19 corridor.
Wayfinding systems include signage, banners, brochures, visitor guides, gateway features and public art. Wayfinding is also present in technology through mobile apps and interactive maps. Wayfinding systems serve to help residents and visitors find their way to the various destinations in an area. They also promote a city’s overall identity, and brand business areas and neighborhoods. Additionally, they serve as a tool for marketing, tourism and economic development.
