With the Strategic Wayfinding Plan, the City of Greenbelt seeks to orient, direct, and inform visitors and residents to both well-known and less-well-known attractions within historic Greenbelt and the city as a whole. The plan will be developed with input from the City of Greenbelt’s Advisory Planning Board, Arts Advisory Board, residents, and city council.
The wayfinding plan will facilitate travel to key sites by driving, walking, bicycling, or using transit by providing clear directions along safe and convenient routes. Specific attention will be given to directing residents and visitors to and around Roosevelt Center, the historic retail and cultural core of the community. Although the project is intended to comprehensively address wayfinding throughout the city, land owned and maintained by the National Park Service (for example, Greenbelt Park) is excluded from the project area.
This project shall comprise the following elements:
Inventory of existing wayfinding features: type, location, condition
Identification of key sites and wayfinding gaps or deficiencies
Development of sign design concepts
Recommendations addressing new sign locations and replacement, and removal/consolidation of signage
