Wayfinding for Walking

Architect Follows Signs to Create Walk [Your City]

Eugene has a number of signings letting you know how long it takes to get to particular destinations by bike-- as we create more 20 minute neighborhoods, more signs letting pedestrians know where they can get within 20 minutes would probably be handy. A new start-up can help cities like Eugene get them.

β€œIn short, a walkable city is safer, more interesting, healthier, environmentally sustainable, supports retail and creates more economic development as a result. Our primary goal is to get people out of their cars and walking between our great art galleries, bars, restaurants and shops. We know people on the streets encourages other people to walk, and it makes a city feel more alive and energetic.”
