In our research phase, interviews with local trail users uncovered the presence of rare bird species and diverse wildlife in the region. Recognizing the importance of educating visitors, we decided to include educational signage in John Day. Additionally, discussions sparked ideas for other interactive signs, including mile markers, signs about local flora and fauna, and historical points of interest. Consequently, we developed a series of interpretive signs and integrated them into John Day's wayfinding guidelines. Our recommendations, based on these insights, were presented to the City Council. The wayfinding system we designed extended beyond the trails and included providing directions to local attractions and conveniences. These included restrooms, sports facilities, dining, the local airport, gas/ EV charging stations, hospitals, and museums. A full presentation of custom icons highlighting these areas of interest were designed and included in a 26-page Wayfinding Guideline documented which we presented to the John Day City Council at the conclusion of our project. This clear and effective guidance will ensure that the City has everything it needs for signing new buildings, parks, or developments they may open in the coming years and decades to come.
