Wayfinding signage project takes first step

Visitors and residents will soon have some help in finding popular attractions and other important locations in Minot thanks to a wayfinding signage project supported by the Minot City Council.

Economic development director Jonathan Rosenthal introduced the wayfinding signage project to members of the City Council on April 19. 

Wayfinding signage is used to help direct visitors from point to point throughout the area, and could be used to direct visitors to such locations as shopping destinations, the Roosevelt Park Zoo, the North Dakota State Fairgrounds, golf courses, City Hall, Minot Public Library, Minot International Airport, the Amtrak depot, Trinity Hospital, Minot State University, parks, museums, theaters and auditoriums, and other local attractions.

“Wayfinding doesn’t just tell people which way to go, it also tells you you’re there,” Rosenthal said. “It tells you there’s a museum next to you that maybe you haven’t thought about or didn’t know about if you’re not from the area.”

Rosenthal said wayfinding signage isn’t intended to replace smart phones, but is meant to work in conjunction with technology to help provide information to visitors and residents.

The Council approved a $70,000 engineering contract with Ackerman-Estvold. Rosenthal said engineering for the signs will be completed this year, and the signage could be implemented in 2022 at an estimated cost of $300,000 if the project is approved by the Council to be included in the 2022 budget.
