City Council will receive an informational update on the Wayfinding and City signage project at the September 19, 2022 City Council meeting.
Wayfinding is a system of signs and visual cues that helps people navigate through a city, guiding them to key destinations such as parks, trails, schools and transit stops. The City currently has a wide variety of different sign types and styles that does not portray a consistent city image and can make navigating through Issaquah confusing. A new set of comprehensive City facility, park, and wayfinding signage will ensure residents and visitors know how to find important destinations throughout Issaquah.
Wayfinding Sign Design and Next Steps
Following a robust community engagement process, public feedback led to the creation of a final wayfinding sign concept. The City created prototypes of two sign types; they have been on display along the Rainier Trail by the Community Center from Sept. 1-Sept. 25, allowing for members of the community to see the signs in person. Feedback on the latest design concepts has been gathered through a survey, which is live until September 25, 2022.
Next steps for the Wayfinding project include finalizing the preferred conceptual design as it is modified into a final sign design. Feedback from the most recent community survey will inform this design.
