Sequim continues downtown streetscape improvements
August 30th, 2013 - 5:30am
(Sequim) -- Sequim continues to roll out the "eggplant carpet" to visitors as they move into phase two and three of their streetscaping project.
New benches, bike racks, and trash receptacles in the trademark eggplant color for the City, are already in place for visitors to the downtown area. Barbara Hanna, the communications and marketing director for Sequim, calls the project part of a corporate branding process for the city and a way for both citizens and visitors to easily find their way in and around town.
Informational signage, a practical infrastructure for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists, all tied together with a Sequim-based color scheme, was the goal for this project.
Phase one of the project included the benches, bike racks and some signage, but phase two and three are still in progress.
The $50,000-dollar project was funded from the Sequim Lodging Tax, and included input from local merchants advisory group.
