Downtown Wayfinding

About this Project

In the interest of assisting residents and visitors to locate essential services and places, the Town is working on a Wayfinding plan. This includes signage as well as online mapping. With paid parking planned for 2020, the Town wanted to ensure that parking lots are clearly identified so drivers know which lots have paid and free spaces. The Town continues to implement this project.

Wayfinding improvements were among a wide range of needed projects identified by the community in the completed and adopted Downtown Plan to benefit guests. The Downtown Plan is available for review at

Project Updates

Update 02.04.2020

The Town received a proposal for scope, schedule and fee for wayfinding plans, specifications and estimates. A contract was awarded the E.Holdings, Inc. Priority installation is prior to Memorial Day weekend in anticipation of the June 1 paid parking rollout. 

Update 12.05.18

Town staff is working to develop concepts to implement downtown wayfinding recommendations of the Downtown Plan. A public open house was held in October and public comments received were extremely valuable. A discussion with the Town Board for approval of the sign locations and sign architecture is expected the first quarter of 2019.

"October 11, 2018 Public Meeting" The Town of Estes Park invites the public to learn about, and provide input on,a project to install wayfinding signage in the downtown area at an open house on Oct. 11 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall in Rooms 202 and 203. Wayfinding signage will help direct motorists and cyclists to parking locations, and guide pedestrians to a variety of desired destinations. Staff will make a brief presentation at 4:30 p.m. on several wayfinding concepts developed for consideration, including sign architecture, locations and labels. The open house will provide the opportunity to review and comment on these concepts prior to finalizing the wayfinding plan.

Individuals unable to attend the Oct. 11 meeting are encouraged to review project materials available on this webpage. Written comments may be mailed to Town of Estes Park Public Works, RE: Downtown Wayfinding, P.O. Box 1200, Estes Park, CO 80517 or emailed to no later than Oct. 26.
