Main Street Fayetteville installs new downtown signage

Main Street Fayetteville installs new downtown signage

The intersections in Downtown Fayetteville received a nice addition recently with the installation of new, directional "wayfinding" signage. 

The signs have a historic look to match the Main Street design theme, and help point the way to Fayetteville's civic and cultural places of interest.

Visitors and long time residents of Fayetteville can now easily locate the Train Depot, the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum and City Hall, to name a few.

Main Street Director, Brian Wismer, has already received favorable comments. 

"Many people have gone out of their way to tell me how much they love the new signs,” Wismer said. “The second day after the signs went up, we had some first-time visitors to the Train Depot because they saw and followed the signs to our location."

The signs are part of a Main Street/Downtown Development project that also includes a downtown directional kiosk, and a walking tour brochure of Downtown Fayetteville's historic sites.  The project is half funded by a Preserve America grant that was awarded to the City by the National Parks Service, Department of the Interior.  The remaining funds were provided from proceeds of the Downtown Development Authority.

More money wasted

The signs are hard to read from a car and is this really the best time to do this? Could we not spend this money on something more valuable and needed.

Who can drive and read all those signs?

The signs look nice and if you're walking on the sidewalk, they might help you. I'll bet you the accidents increase in Fayetteville.

To use an old and tired

To use an old and tired cliche, the signs are like putting lipstick on a pig. Downtown Fayetteville is an ugly dump, and adding cute little signs won't help a bit...
