Annapolis Wayfinding and Signage Master Plan

The Annapolis Wayfinding and Signage Master Plan was approved by City Council on July 9, 2013.  Currently, the first phase of the project, that pedestrian phase, is in fabrication.  We'd like to thank the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority and the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board for helping to fund this work.

Background:

The City of Annapolis received a grant from the Baltimore Metropolitan Council to improve its city-wide wayfinding for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists.  Building on previous efforts, this grant-funded master plan creates an inventory of existing wayfinding signage, identifies the preferred location and content for a comprehensive program of wayfinding signs, and incorporates the use of interactive and electronic signs.  Headed by a 10-person steering committee, the plan was reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission and Planning Commission.
