SALT LAKE CITY — The city is seeking public input on the creation of a new, citywide signage system for public spaces.

Residents are invited to an open house event on Thursday, Jan. 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre at the Sorenson Unity Center, 1383 S. 900 West.

To enhance the user experience and stewardship of the city's open spaces, Landmark Design Inc. was selected to lead planning and design efforts toward the creation of a comprehensive signage system for the city's parks, natural lands and trails. The purpose of the project is to establish a plan that outlines the signage standards for enhancing the user experience, and then create the design of specific signs for nine sites.

The sites are: Bonneville Shoreline Preserve, Bonneville Shoreline Trail, Ensign Peak Trail, Hidden Hollow Natural Area, H-Rock Open Space, Jordan River Parkway Trail, Miller Park Bird Refuge, Parleys Historic Nature Park and Wasatch Hollow Open Space.

The meeting is the first of three public meetings scheduled during winter and spring 2014 for the public to review progress and provide input on this project. Dates of future meetings and additional information can be found at
