Public meeting to discuss wayfinding in Toronto
  
The City of Toronto has scheduled a meeting for this Wednesday evening to share information and hold discussions with the public on the City’s proposed wayfinding system for residents, commuters and visitors.

The meeting will be held Wednesday, March 28 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the rotunda of Metro Hall, 55 John St.

Wayfinding is a system designed to help people to find their way around a city. More than just signs, wayfinding today includes names, maps and new media as well as elements of the public realm such as lighting, street furniture and public art.

In the first phase of the project, the plan is to establish principles and an implementation strategy, identify potential funding sources and define the parameters of a pilot project that will be presented to Toronto City Council.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
