What do you think about our new downtown sign plan?

The City of Huntsville will present its new "Wayfinding" directional signage plan for downtown Huntsville to the Planning Commission on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 5 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 308 Fountain Circle. The public is invited to attend. Once approved, the City plans to begin implementation in late summer 2014.

A wayfinding plan addresses directional signage for motorists and pedestrians. Huntsville desired a professional and consistent plan that helped residents and visitors easily locate public parking and major attractions. The plan was developed by Frazier and Associates of Virginia who worked for the past year with a steering committee of community stakeholders.

The plan, and its process, is available for viewing in the download below.

  1. I think this is wonderful. I have always thought that Huntsville needed more informational signs to point out points of interest. I also think that it would be good to put signs on the parkway like they have on interstates pointing out dining establishments along certain exits. This could be a source of income since businesses could rent space on the signs to advertise their businesses. It should be simple like the interstate system and only show logo/name and exit. There could be directional signs at the exit if the business is not apparent at the exit.

  2. As downtown residents, the most common question we get when walking downtown is how to get to the hospital.

  3. Happy to hear this is being done! Unless you know the area and how to get to where you are going, the current signage is not very helpful to newcomers.
