City, CVB seeks proposals for new signage across the city

Metro Wire Staff

The City of Stevens Point, in partnership with the Stevens Point Area Convention & Visitor Bureau (CVB) is seeking concepts for development of signage across the city.

City leaders want proposals from firms and/or individuals for the development of a comprehensive city entrance, neighborhood, and wayfinding signage program. The program will include design elements that are consistent throughout the community, taking into consideration the city’s geographic location, community and/or cultural assets and community stakeholder input into the design.

Proposals are due no later than 4 p.m. CST on August 20, 2021.

A successful proposal will include:

  • Identifying strategic locations for signage along public roadways, pedestrian ways, and the 27-mile award-winning Green Circle Trail.
  • Provide a phased approach to installation of signage over the next few years to reduce the financial impact on the city’s budget.
  • Expected budgeting required to fully implement the program.
  • No impact or alteration to the city’s ‘crest’ logo.

The final project should “enhance resident and tourist experience,” according to the RFP, by providing “clear and consistent wayfinding signage to community and cultural assets in the downtown area and throughout the community.”

Signage should also provide “a sense of place through thoughtful design that promotes our community and neighborhoods to be desirable places to live,” and gain buy-in from key stakeholders in the community.
