You may have noticed that all of the ‘Pagoda’ style entryway signs around the city have been removed and the City has replaced most of them with new Gateway Monument signs. In total, eight new gateway signs have been installed at major entryways to the city.
In addition to the Gateway signs, the City will also be installing 29 ‘wayfinding’ signs at various locations in the next few weeks. These will highlight main attractions such as Downtown, City Hall, Pleasant Hill Library, PH Community Center and other key buildings and parks in order to help both residents and visitors navigate to major destinations in the City.
The Gateway and Wayfinding signage was designed over an 18 month period working with WRT, urban design consultants, and Arrow Sign Company. The process included ten public workshops and multiple focus group meetings during which input was solicited from various community members regarding design concepts and locations for the new signs.
