Architects Sought to Design Highway Signs

Architects Sought to Design Highway Signs

SUISUN CITY - The Suisun City Redevelopment Agency has issued a Request for Qualifications to assist in identifying a professional sign design/architectural firm to work collaboratively with staff and an ad hoc committee to develop enhanced highway signage at the main easterly entrance to Suisun City, California.

The Agency has spent considerable time and resources reviving the economy of the Waterfront District. As more businesses located in the Waterfront District and marketing programs have generated increased interest in the Waterfront District as a destination, the need for enhanced signage has become apparent.

The Agency Board has authorized staff and the ad hoc committee to pursue designs of two signature sign features:

  • An electronic reader board to be located on Highway 12 at the southeast corner of Pennsylvania Avenue; and
  • An “iconic” sign near the Suisun City Train Station announcing the Waterfront District as a destination to motorists traveling east bound on Highway 12.
