[Source: Lynn Ducey, Phoenix Business Journal] — This spring, Downtown Phoenix Partnership will begin installation of its $800,000 way-finding project to identify key sites and attractions for downtown visitors. The signs are being funded through a 2006 voter-approved capital bond earmarked for improving downtown. SmithCraft of Phoenix is doing the work. “Our big focus is on downtown aesthetics. This is a way for everyone to be able to easily find and walk to cultural sites,” said David Roderique, president and CEO of the partnership.
City leaders also are working on a proposal to address the hordes of newspaper boxes throughout downtown. Not all are maintained.
