Signs of the Times – City Hall version

RethinkPublic Signs
 
 
It is time the City o Vancouver brought public signage into the 21st century. Too manyo the notication signs, particularly related to planning and development, are written inoutdated, technical language that makes it dicult or people to understand. These signsuse small onts, lack colour, and seem to encourage people to ignore them, rather than toread and be informed by them.The City should engage the professional design community in a redesign contest forits development notifcation materials. The redesign contest should seek proposals orhow City signs can be engaging and visually appealing when inorming the public about development proposals.
This is pretty weird: when I cut and paste from the document, all the “f’s disappear. Afraid to use f-words is one thing, but this is silly.
