M5/M6 - Improve the Wayfinding System for Pedestrians and Motorists

A working group within DPIC discussed various ways to improve signage and wayfinding around Downtown.  The group suggested that a comprehensive and uniform wayfinding plan for all of Westport would be useful and attractive.  A RFP was developed and distributed to bid out the creation of town-wide wayfinding system (which can be implemented in phases).  Proposals are due back in mid-September and will then be evaluated. 

  • Five firms were interviewed for the project.  The firm, Merje, was awarded the work.  In January 2017, the Board of Finance approved $50,000 for the project.  Board of Selectman will review the contract next and then the work can commence.
