The Town of Apex is developing a Wayfinding Signage Program to provide consistent and attractive information to residents and visitors discovering and navigating to key destinations in Town. This effort was an action item in Bike Apex: The Comprehensive Bicycle Plan and The Downtown Master Plan and Parking Study. As part of the Wayfinding Signage Program, the Department of Planning and Community Development is asking for public input on the proposed design for the new signs.
The proposed wayfinding program was developed by MERJE through a collaborative process with a Staff Advisory Committee and Stakeholder Groups. Key considerations included:
- The Town logo and colors from the recently-completed Community Branding Study should serve as the basis of the design.
- Wayfinding signs in Apex should be distinguishable from neighboring municipalities. Yellow, from the Town’s newly-established color palette, is used as an accent to set Apex apart.
- Unique elements should be incorporated in the design for downtown signs to distinguish this special area. Downtown history and architecture inspired the brick base of the pedestrian kiosks, scalloped panels representative of building awnings, and decorative pole bases.
- The designs must comply with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and all local and state regulations pertaining to signs.

Public comments on the proposed sign designs are welcome as we work to establish a Wayfinding Signage Program that creates a sense of place for visitors and residents.
