Casper City Council members discuss 'Wayfinding Master Plan'
Casper-Area Metropolitan Planning Organization officials updated Casper City Council members on the “Wayfinding Master Plan” at Tuesday’s work session.
If approved, the plan would increase signage in Natrona County and its municipalities.
The signs would point people in the direction of certain major destinations throughout the area, such as downtown Casper.
“The idea is to be able to engage our traveling public in a more proactive way to help them understand where a lot of the features that bring people to our community are at,” Casper City Manager Carter Napier said.
The signs, however, won’t just benefit locals. Visitors may actually gain more from the proposed signage.
“We have a lot of people that travel through here, whether it’s winter time, spring, summer, that are tourists that come into our town and it just makes sense in having signage up that would direct people in the right direction to where they want to go,” Casper Mayor Steve Freel, Ward III, said.
Natrona County and municipalities would split the project’s costs. The split has not yet been determined.
