To promote economic development and tourism, Elk Grove is exploring a wayfinding signage program that could add directional signs throughout the city. The signs would help visitors and residents easily navigate key destinations and landmarks in the city limits.

Nearby cities like Sacramento and Folsom use wayfinding signs to promote a visitor and business-friendly environment and a unique, unified civic identity.

Two public workshops have been scheduled to gather input from Elk Grove residential and
business communities about the proposed wayfinding sign program.

Wayfinding Signage Program Public Workshops

Thursday, January 12 at Noon
Thursday, January 12 6: 30 p.m.

City of Elk Grove Council Chambers
8400 Laguna Palms Way
Elk Grove, CA 95758

The meetings will allow community members to weigh in on components of a wayfinding
program including directional sign locations, signage designs, and points of interest to be
featured on signs, including freeways, historic sites, shopping areas and recreation amenities.

The City of Elk Grove recognizes that a successful wayfinding signage program requires
collaboration with residents, local agencies and key stakeholders in the business community.

A scope and budget for the wayfinding signage program has not yet been identified. After City
staff has gathered input from the community, staff will provide a report and recommendation
to the Elk Grove City Council at a future meeting.

For more information, contact Christine Brainerd at 478-3632 or cbrainerd@elkgrovecity.org.

REALLY? What a wonderful idea. Those tourists can become a nuisance stopping you and asking directions to all our hot spots.

Who brainstormed this little idea...money burning someones hands? You do realize we're drowning in empty strip malls, businesses are closing, people are out of work, Food Bank is swamped, the list goes on and on. Some city employees have waaaay too much time on their hands.

Elk Grove a tourist destination? What are they smoking at city hall?

If someone wants to have their hair or nails done, then they will need to know how to get to the jewel in Elk Grove's crown, also known as Old Town.

What if someone wants to shop at the Promenade? They'll need to know how to get there!

What are they smoking at City Hall? Why, it's the marijuana that the Planning Commission outlawed...
The streets need to be painted so that pedestrians have half a chance to cross the street in the first place.
I agree. This is a waste of taxpayers' dollars.
