Remember taking that survey about signage in the Bridge River Valley? Did you get your beer at the Pub? Well for those of you curious about the results of the survey and the findings of our comprehensive review of signage in the Bridge River Valley, here are a few highlights as well as link to a summary presentation prepared by our signage project manager, Heather Roberts:
But what exactly are wayfinding signs?
So, where do we go from here?
The Economic Development Committee of the Bridge River Valley Community Association is leading the following next steps:
1. We are requesting immediate support from the SLRD to assist in addressing missing signs and inconsistencies in our signage as this affects resident and visitor safety as well as the overall visitor experience to our area
2. We are issuing a Request for Proposal to secure the services of a graphic designer to work together with the community to create a new look that captures the essence of the Bridge River Valley and everything that makes this a special place to live and visit
3. We are drafting a ‘How To’ guide for local residents and businesses that have non-permitted signs and/or are considering erecting signage – look for this on our website soon
4. We are working to identify signage priorities within the report provided and to secure funding to proceed with improvements. Responding to all the needs identified in the report will take many years, but we will start with the most pressing concerns and the greatest opportunities and go from there.
