Salt Lake City Open Space Signage
The Branding & Interpretive Charette findings/results are available for download using the link to the upper right.
There will be two more public meetings regarding the process of the Salt Lake City Open Space Signage project. The Preliminary Concept Review was held in January at the Sorenson Unity Center. This meeting provided valuable feedback and ideas that will help guide the future Salt Lake City Open Space Signage Project. There will be two more meetings held at the same location. The first of these 40% and 70% review meetings will be held sometime in the spring.
Landmark Design, Inc. has been hired by Salt Lake City to lead planning and design efforts toward the creation of a comprehensive signage system for the City's Open Spaces. The purpose of the project is to first establish a master plan that outlines the standards and measures for enhancing the user experience, which will be followed by the detailed design of specific signs for nine identified sites as follow:
The signage should create a recognizable brand and graphic aesthetic for the lands managed by the City’s Parks and Public Lands Division (SLC PPLD). The signage system should also address the variety of place types (parks, natural area, trailhead, educational node, feature, etc.), determine what sign types are typically needed for each place, and develop standard sign types and design specifications. The signage system will coordinate the various types of signs required, such as way-finding, directional, destination, park entry, interpretive, regulatory, boundary, donation, and trail markers. The City would also like an assessment of existing regulations which may affect the siting of specific signs and messages.
The project will conclude with the design of more than 100 individual signs, which will address on-going sign fabrication, installation and maintenance through the use of appropriate sign materials that can be reproduced for replacements and withstand vandalism, graffiti and graffiti removal. It is expected the total project time period will be approximately 20 to 24 weeks. This will include all components outlined above, through the design effort.
