Morro Bay, CA – The City is launching the Wayfinding sign project this week, concluding in early November 2022. The $200,000 project, funded through the economic development fund, will bring 40 – 50 new wayfinding and parking signs to town to help orient community members and visitors to key landmarks, facilities and parking areas throughout the City.
The project comes on the heels of engagement with the business community, Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce, Morro Bay Tourism, Public Works Advisory Board and the Planning Commission. That engagement helped inform decisions about the type of signage and locations selected. The signage project will update, replace, and add wayfinding signs throughout the city mainly in business districts.
“We are excited to see this project come to fruition, to support our local business community by guiding our residents and visitors to important landmarks and parking more seamlessly,” said Mayor John Headding.
Beginning this week and running through early November, signs will be placed on City streets and sidewalks and at main entrance points into the city within the city limits. The City has contracted with Statewide Safety Systems of Nipomo to perform this project.
