Wayfinding Program

The town of Mt. Crested Butte is working with the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) on a signage and wayfinding program. The DDA was formed with the vision of providing guidance for future development within the town, specifically within the area designated as the commercial core of Mt. Crested Butte. The DDA consists of local business owners and/or resident members appointed by Town Council.

The town of Mt. Crested Butte plans to develop a wayfinding system with complementary and consistent primary, secondary, and tertiary wayfinding to support pedestrians, bicycles, buses, and vehicular traffic. The design will be developed with the intent to enhance the sense of place in a mountain community with adaptable and updatable designs to account for changing locations and destinations around the town.

Michael Baker International will be leading this effort from July 2021–January 2022. The goal is to begin sign installation in spring 2022, with a phasing and funding plan for the rest of the signage. It is the intent that implementation of these signs will occur over time as funding is available from different sources or grants.
