This week the City installed a new, large wayfinding sign near the often-busy intersection of North Bend Way and Mt. Si Road – the primary entrance point to one of the City’s most popular outdoor recreation areas - in support of local businesses.
The new sign was installed as part of a Port of Seattle Economic Development grant program and will direct visitors from this popular outdoor recreation spot to downtown North Bend businesses.
The grant will also fund new seasonal outdoor banners in the City’s downtown corridor, as well as smaller outdoor recreation and historic downtown wayfinding signage.
City of North Bend Associate Planner Bre Keveren commented, “We believe this form of tourism marketing will help boost our local economy and support businesses by increasing patronage in our downtown via outdoor adventure tourism.”
The signage was developed in collaboration with the North Bend Economic Development Commission (EDC) and the Downtown Foundation to ensure it was consistent with the Snoqualmie Valley corridor wayfinding program, while also staying true to North Bend’s brand: ‘We are a highly livable small town that is the premier outdoor recreation destination in the Puget Sound Region.’
