On Tuesday, August 6th, officials from the Village of Mamaroneck, business-owners, and members of the public celebrated the completion of Phase I of its Downtown Wayfinding Signage project with an official ribbon cutting ceremony at one of the new signs at the corner of Mamaroneck Avenue and Boston Post Road. “The attractive new signage and the recently paved streets have given the Village downtown a much needed and overdue freshening. I am thrilled with the new look and appreciate the staff’s hard work in bringing the Board of Trustee’s vision to fruition,” said Mayor Tom Murphy right before he cut the ribbon signaling the completion of the project.
The network of signs, kiosks, and directional markers will help visitors to “The Avenue” (as downtown Mamaroneck is often known) as well as the emerging “Avenue North” business district north of the train tracks find points of interest including parking lots, public transportation, government offices, community institutions, parks, and local shopping and dining. Phase I consists of 30 vehicular signs designed to help motorists locate parking and find key sites. Phase 2, which is still in the planning phase, will include community boards to advertise events and informational kiosks for navigating downtown as well as attractive “gateway” signs at Village entry points.
