The Telluride Arts District, in partnership with the Town, is embarking on an update of signage and information that will make it easier for locals and visitors to navigate the community. Facilitated by Kate Jones, director of Telluride Arts, a wayfinding committee that consisted of representation from the Town, Telski, the Tourism Board, Mountain Village, and the Open Space Commission made recommendations to Telluride Town Council in June of 2014.
The recommendations outlined sixteen improvements that included cleaning up the streetscape with consistent signage, improving signage for key destinations, marking the Telluride Arts District and the Telluride Historic District, improving signage for parking and special events, and creating three kiosks with event information, among others. The complete list of recommendations can be seen in the slideshow to the right.
After reviewing proposals from four design firms, the wayfinding committee has selected Esse Design out of Carbondale to design the wayfinding system. The design phase will begin in March, and community input is being sought regarding the current system, recommended changes, and design.
