Last week Saranac Lake posted the first of several Wayfinding signs in the Village Parking Lot downtown and at Riverside Park. These two large maps highlight many of the larger destinations throughout town. These maps are part of a multi year planning and design project the Village has been working to develop. The purpose of the project is to help make Saranac Lake more bicycle and pedestrian friendly.
The North Country Healthy Heart Network has worked with the Villiage’s Parks & Trails Advisory Board (PTAB) closely on this project. Through our grant programs we have been able to pay for a portion of the cost of the new signage.
The next stage of this project will be to add smaller directional signs pointing to community destinations throughout town. All of the signs will be placed with the pedestrian in mind, in easy to read locations and with walking distance displayed on the signs.
