The Town of Barnstable was recently awarded technical assistance through the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative Technical Assistance (MDI) Program to develop a Downtown Hyannis Wayfinding Plan. The Town is currently collaborating with Stantec, the design consultant, to gather data and conduct community outreach to develop a Wayfinding Plan that will ease navigation to downtown amenities and public parking, and help to improve overall vehicular circulation. The study area for this project is focused on downtown Hyannis spanning from the intersection of Main Street and South Street (to the west) to School Street (to the east) including nearby destinations.Downtown Hyannis Wayfinding Plan Study Area
We are currently working to collect existing conditions data based upon available GIS, prior planning and technical studies, field observations, and aerial images to establish a comprehensive inventory of the Town’s existing signage by type and condition. Up to (2) preliminary design options for sign typologies will be developed including:
Public outreach will be coordinated to present the preliminary design options and to obtain feedback.
This project implements recommendations in the Hyannis Parking Study and the associated Implementation Strategy to improve the legibility of the parking system through wayfinding strategies.
