RE: Wayfinding Signage Constructed with Help from Georgia Department of Economic Development
Toccoa, Georgia –June 1, 2016 – Main Street Toccoa is in the midst of implementing its grant for Tourism Product Development (TPD) from the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) for downtown wayfinding signage.
Presently, the City of Toccoa is erecting signage at seven (7) locations: the corner of Tullulah Street and Currahee Street, on Broad Street and Doyle Street near the First Citizens Bank parking lot and by the Fire Department, on the corner of Pond Street and Currahee Street, on the greenspace located between Big A Road and Currahee Street, on the greenspace located between Big A Road and Highway 17, and on Highway 123 near the Currahee Vineyard.
Sign design was based on drawings from the Department of Community Affairs Downtown Design Studio and Craig R. Thurmond & Associates. The Toccoa Downtown Development Authority was instrumental in the overall sign color and site selection for the project, as well.
These attractive wayfinding signs will encourage visitors and residents alike to visit Downtown Toccoa, drawing them toward downtown’s many attractions, eateries, and retail locations. This project would not be possible without the support of the GDEcD through funding and guidance.
