Improving tourist signs in city becomes priority
From the Buffalo News:
The generations- old debate over the best use of street signs to direct tourists to local attractions may be nearing a settlement — but not quite yet.
City Council Chairman Sam Fruscione and Mayor Paul A. Dyster said they plan to discuss the issue during a private meeting today, and the mayor said the present street-direction signs “leave a lot to be desired, especially in the downtown area.”
Members of the Tourism Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to the City Council, agreed by consensus Monday that too many signs direct tourists toward the Rainbow Bridge to Canada instead of toward Niagara Falls State Park, Goat Island and local attractions. Fruscione said he would take the advisory board’s concerns to the mayor today.
