Core Gateway Signage Grant Program for Riviera Beach

DATE:  February 2021

PROGRAM & ROLE:
Signage is very important to the success of businesses.  Signs advertise not just the business location but are tools for communicating to the customer the nature and quality of the services provided.  Acknowledging the importance of signage to the businesses and the community in Riviera Beach, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (RBCRA) has developed a Core Gateway Signage Project and Signage Improvement Grant Program to improve the community aesthetic and wayfinding infrastructure within the RBCRA.  The program focuses on the two major thoroughfares of Broadway and Blue Heron Boulevard and includes the study of commercial business signs as well as wayfinding signage. 

The goals of the project include:

  • Establish design aesthetic recommendations to improve business signs;
  • Create incentives for business owners to be consistent with design recommendations; and
  • Produce concepts for wayfinding signage which provide orientation for regional destinations and enhance community aesthetic and vision.

The study produced a proposed grant funding program and methodology for business sign improvements, designs aesthetic recommendations, design concepts for grant program Pilot Projects, and design concepts for an expanded and improved wayfinding signage network.
