Objectives

  • Provide design guidelines to address architectural qualities, building massing and orientation, parking, fencing, lighting, and signage (BRP p. 154).
  • Establish regional wayfinding signage that supports for unique jurisdiction and community identities.
  • Encourage connectivity to communities and regional destinations, such as parks, trails, educational institutions, employment centers, transit, park and ride lots, and tourist destinations.
  • Create safer pedestrian and bicyclists facilities by using wayfinding signage to make bicycle and pedestrian routes more visible.

Measures

  1. Connections. Ensure signage provides guidance for seamless connections to town & village centers, public open spaces, and educational institutions, locations of interest, transit facilities, and trails.
  2. Coordinated. Coordinate wayfinding sign design to incorporate regional wayfinding standards and allow for unique jurisdiction and community identity.
  3. Consistent. Ensure wayfinding signage is consistent with Monterey County Bicycle and Pedestrian Wayfinding Signage Design standards
  4. Legible. Ensure wayfinding signage is clear and readable to the intended audience (i.e. pedestrians, cyclists, equestrians and motorists).
  5. Safety. Ensure signage is safely placed in accordance with the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices standards.
