The Capital City Development Corporation (CCDC), Downtown Boise Association (DBA) and other community partners have begun a collaborative process to develop a wayfinding system for downtown Boise. A wayfinding system involves a network of information, direction, and identification signs that will be designed to work in unison to help guide people throughout the downtown area. The wayfinding signage will be strategically placed throughout downtown and include a graphic theme of distinctive, memorable images and icons.
To develop a wayfinding system that accurately represents downtown Boise, input needs to be gathered from the people who most actively use downtown (i.e. for work and recreation). CCDC and DBA have strategically identified a variety of downtown’s unique sectors, including shopping and dining, transportation, parks and outdoors, arts and cultural, education, bikes and pedestrians, major employers, entertainment, tourism, and residents. The leaders, employees and community members from each of these sectors will be brought together for two meetings over the next year to help develop the downtown Boise wayfinding system.
Give Your Input!
Two surveys are now being conducted to learn about the public’s use and perception of downtown. Please give us your input. It will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete both surveys and your feedback will help to develop the Downtown Boise Wayfinding System.
