City council has approved using almost $300,000 to put up signs throughout Downtown that will help residents and visitors find their way around the city, and find attractions.
Through the Downtown Wayfinding Project, the city will install gateway signs, pedestrian signs, directional signs for drivers and parking signs.
"Most places find that if you have a wayfinding project, it really helps with economic development. It makes people understand the way downtown works, what resources are available to them, things that they might now have known about previously," said Anne Wallace.
The city chose Gresham, Smith and Partners as the engineer for the project.
Construction is expected to start in 2013.
