The Downtown Littleton wayfinding signage won the 2016 Governor’s Award for Downtown Excellence! If you haven’t seen the signs it’s worth a look. There are four types of signs. Gateway signs at Prince and Santa Fe and Bowles and Santa Fe make eye-catching statements announcing the north and west entrances to the downtown area. The wayfinding signs direct drivers to downtown points of interest and include detailed maps to guide pedestrians. These signs are topped with historic photos that speak to the notable history of Littleton. The side street signs point the way to merchants, restaurants, and service providers along the side streets.
The comprehensive gateway and wayfinding signage plan greatly enhances the city, distinguishes the area, calls attention to points of interest and also helps increase circulation in the downtown district. The sign designs pay homage to Littleton’s history, highlight its brand and add modern flair and are lighted to create visibility at night.
