From Brighouse to Bridgeport, City Centre to Steveston, or wherever you need to go!

What is Wayfinding

Wayfinding connects people to their surroundings and helps them find their way—for example, through directional signage and visual landmarks. Wayfinding can also promote attractions, places of special interest and the best routes for moving through the city. Improved wayfinding will enhance the City as a destination and as a community.


Richmond's new Community Wayfinding Strategy

As Richmond grows, both as a place to live and as a place to visit, the City wants to unify and enhance Richmond as a vibrant destination. The Strategy will consider how people move, through all types of transportation, to elevate the experience of Richmond.

The Strategy is being developed to guide future wayfinding within Richmond. The Strategy will include recommendations for implementation, such as new signs, digital wayfinding systems, and potential pilot projects.

The Community Wayfinding Strategy is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2024. Through opportunities for input with the public and with specific community groups, the Strategy seeks to improve wayfinding in the City of Richmond for the benefit of residents and visitors.


Ways to Share Your Ideas

To succeed, the Strategy requires community input—and the public is invited to share their ideas to help guide this important work. Participants’ priorities and concerns will help shape the direction of the Community Wayfinding Strategy, for example in identifying areas around the city that will benefit from improved signage.
