New wayfinding signage unveiled in Butler County

BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - The Butler County Visitors Bureau officially unveiled the wayfinding signage program at a ceremony on Wednesday.

The event introduced the first phase of the program, which will include 150 signs spread throughout the county identifying 30 destinations like Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, Wake Nation, and EnterTRAINment Junction.

The wayfinding signage program was a recommendation from a Butler County tourism product development study, conducted by Zeitgeist Consulting.

The study identified a need for a countywide wayfinding signage program to help identify destinations and attractions, as well as connect communities throughout Butler County.

The program is more than just signs to help visitors find their way.

"A wayfinding signage program plays a key role in the perceptions of a community. An effective signage program can be a big part of the overall experience a visitor has when traveling," explains Mark Hecquet, Executive Director of the Butler County Visitors Bureau. "Wayfinding signs are not only an effective navigation resource for visitors but are also a great way to promote destinations within Butler County."

The wayfinding signage ceremony was held at Butler County Government Services building in Hamilton.
