Worcester, MA (January 11, 2016) - A public presentation will be held to highlight the progress and timeline of the Worcester Wayfinding Project, a system for guiding visitors through the City using signage, destination identifiers and information kiosks.
The presentation will be held on Wednesday, January 20th from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM at the EcoTarium, 222 Harrington Way, Worcester.
The City of Worcester, in partnership with the Worcester Cultural Coalition, the colleges and universities of Worcester, Discover Central Massachusetts and others, will unveil a final work plan and estimated project schedule for the City's new Wayfinding system.
The Wayfinding system is intended to spur economic growth especially in the area of cultural tourism. Not only will Wayfinding help people navigate the City geographically, but it will inform visitors of important social, cultural and historical information while supporting public art and stirring interest in the City's many cultural attractions.
The Wayfinding project is supported by grants from the City of Worcester, Massachusetts Office of Transportation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council John and Abigail Adams Arts Program and the Worcester Cultural Coalition.
Selbert Perkins Design, a nationally recognized urban design firm with offices in California and Massachusetts, is assisting with the effort.
The event is open to the public. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
