Daytona Beach holding workshop on wayfinding signage

DAYTONA BEACH -- The public is invited to a workshop about the City of Daytona Beach's wayfinding signage program, 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 in City Hall, 301 S. Ridgewood Ave.

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the master plan process and receive the public's comments regarding purpose, benefits and schedule of the program, city spokeswoman Susan Cerbone said.

"The workshop will provide attendees the opportunity to give comments for the three-phased project which will create a plan to guide vehicular and pedestrian traffic to venues of interest within the city and create distinct signage," Cerbone said. "City commissioners in August 2012 approved an agreement not to exceed $120,000 with Lassiter Transportation Group to produce a wayfinding master plan."

The Daytona Beach-based consultant is currently in inventorying of the city's landmarks and current signage and documenting code requirements for signage, she said.

"The consultant is concentrating on major roadways that serve as gateways into the city including I-95, I-4 and International Speedway Boulevard as well as city, county and state roads such as Beach Street, Main Street, Orange Avenue, Halifax Avenue, Peninsula Avenue, Mason Avenue and Ocean Avenue," Cerbone added.
