Everyone who drives on U.S. Highway 19 in Clearwater and Palm Harbor knows how dangerous it can be. According to News Channel 8, the City of Clearwater is trying to get ideas from drivers on ways to make driving along U.S. Highway 19 a whole lot easier. One suggestion is a new wayfinding system to help drivers on U.S. 19 navigate the area.
The system will use signs, banners, artwork and murals to help drivers identify that they’re in Clearwater. Clearwater assistant planning director Gina Clayton believes that the proposed system will make U.S. 19 safer because it will help drivers find destinations easier. Certain colors and fonts will make signs easy for drivers to read and remember.
The City of Clearwater is holding a public forum to get ideas on the wayfinding system. It’s scheduled to begin tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Clarion Inn & Suites on U.S. Highway 19 in Clearwater. City leaders plan to preview three concepts at the meeting and allow residents to weigh in. If you are concerned about the safety of U.S. 19 in Clearwater and Palm Harbor and can provide your input, make plans on attending the public forum.
