Rehoboth Beach Approves Wayfinding Program

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- The Rehoboth Beach Commissioners approved a new signage program for the city during their Monday night meeting. 

The commissioners voted to accept the proposal relating to Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the wayfinding signage program developed by Merje Design. The 2020 fiscal year budget was modified to authorize the expenditure of up to $278,660. The city received a Community Transportation Funds grant for $20,000 to contribute towards the program.

The intended benefits of the wayfinding program are to improve the flow of traffic in the city through improved navigation, to identify points of interest and their proximity thereby reducing the use of vehicles in town and to improve visitor safety and the overall visitor experience.

In addition to installing wayfinding signs for parking and pedestrians, the project includes gateway enhancements, information kiosks, and a new parking brochure.

The city hired Merje Design in 2018 to design the signs, and they presented three options. After a series of meetings that included stakeholders from city staff and committees, the recommended design the commissioners adopted captures the unique character of the community.

The signs will use a palette of coordinated colors and artwork to identify places of interest, landmarks and attractions, parking, beaches, transit, commercial centers and buildings such as the library and City Hall.

Images of the new signs can be found on the city’s website at cityofrehoboth.com/government/current-city-projects.

Now that the commissioners have approved the design, Projects Coordinator Evan Miller said the next step will be to locate the signs in the field in preparation for a bid package for fabrication and installation.

The signage is anticipated to be in place by the 2020 summer season.

For more information on the wayfinding project contact the Communications Department at communications@cityofrehoboth.com or 302-227-6181 ext. 522.
