The City of Garland Planning and Community Development Department is developing a wayfinding program to better direct visitors and residents to key public destinations within Garland. This program is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to achieve Garland’s economic development goals.

The first phase of this effort focuses on Downtown Garland and has included an in-depth analysis of existing wayfinding practices with input from business and government stakeholders. MERJE Design, an environmental graphics and wayfinding consultant, is providing recommendations and preliminary design options for the City’s consideration.

These recommendations will be made available to the general public at a community meeting on Thursday, Sept. 4 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Garland Branch Library, 3845 N. Garland Ave. Members of the community are encouraged to attend and learn more about this important initiative.

Upon selection and refinement of a preferred design, a formal presentation will be made to the City Council. That presentation is expected to be made in October.
