City of Alexandria Presents Citywide Wayfinding Program Community Open House
City residents are invited to a Citywide Wayfinding Program Community Open House on January 5, 2009, from 7 to 9 p.m. in City Hall, 301 King St., in Room 2000. The purpose of the open house is to share progress on the Citywide sign program and solicit input from residents regarding refinement of the designs.
The City of Alexandria began development of a comprehensive Citywide wayfinding signage system early in 2008 with the following objectives:
A Wayfinding Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) was established to provide input and serve as a liaison to the community. To date, four SAG meetings and two joint SAG/community meetings were held to assist with the programming and designing of the system.
In January 2009, two work sessions on the Wayfinding Program will be held to brief the Planning Commission, the Boards of Architectural Review and City Council. Both meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Council Workroom in City Hall.
