“Wayfinding” signage is in the works for the Buckhead community.

The Buckhead Community Improvement District Executive Director Jim Durrett said they agreed on the signage and a $55,000 contribution from the Buckhead Coalition for the initial nine signs will help get the process started.

These signs are following in the footsteps of Midtown and Downtown. About 10 years ago, the civic group Central Atlanta Progress began the signage program to help assimilate directions for visitors and to show the correlation among the big Atlanta markets.

However, Durrett said the CID is still evaluation how many signs total to implement around Buckhead, as well as where they should be located. He also said they do not know where all the signs will be pointing.

The coalition’s grant includes the nine signs which are said to be directing people to places like MARTA stations, the AMTRAK Station, Piedmont Hospital, the Governor’s Mansion and other significant local establishments.

Despite the progress with the new signage, no signs have actually been created and all the CID has currently is artist renderings. As of yet, there is not a projected date for completion on the signage.
