Finding Your Way Around Hollywood Will Soon Be Easier

We’ve made some exciting progress on the Hollywood Wayfinding Signage Project! Through a series of steering committee meetings, a community open house, and presentations to external organizations, we are nearing completion of the preliminary design work for this program. In addition, we’ve secured a generous contribution of $15,000 from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to help complete the preliminary planning and design work for this legacy project.

Signage design concepts have been thoroughly vetted and a consensus has been developed for the top choice. The selected concept is representative of the iconic art deco architecture seen in many historic buildings throughout Hollywood.

We have finalized the destinations to be included on the pedestrian wayfinding signage as well as the map kiosks. Working with our community partners at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Hollywood Historic Trust, and Council District 13, we are in the process of identifying locations for signage pole placements.

When this design work wraps up by the end of this summer, the Hollywood Entertainment District and the Sunset & Vine District will set forth on a campaign to secure funding for implementation. We will continue to rely on our city and community partners to see this project through to fruition.

We believe this project will be an asset to the Hollywood business community, helping stimulate economic activity while improving the visitor experience. This seamless and fully integrated wayfinding program will not only streamline the pedestrian experience, it will improve vehicular circulation and make it easier for visitors to find parking.

We can’t wait to share our next update!
