Camden City Council will get a first look at a wayfinding signage proposal during its work session Tuesday. The project will be presented by the city’s project team, which has worked with SkyDesign, of Atlanta, since October.

The proposal stems from the city’s Tourism Strategic Plan, which recommends development and placement of interpretive signage around the area, incorporating the city’s tourism brand standards. The idea is to give visitors a medium for exploring what Camden has to offer underpinned by its recently adopted “Classically Carolina” brand. The plan calls for developing a Wayfinding Master Plan within one year and manufacture and installation of the signs within two years.

Council set aside funding for planning and development for the project in its fiscal year 2015 budget. The budget also provides for partial funding for manufacturing and installation, meaning some of the signs can be put into place during this fiscal year.

Other business expected to be discussed during the work session include reorganization of the Camden Historic Landmarks Commission and a review of the Camden Archives and Museum’s 2015 Exhibit Schedule.

During Tuesday night’s regular meeting, council is scheduled to:

• issue a proclamation designating February as Black History Month;

• consider first reading of an ordinance repealing and readopting a new zoning ordinance for the city;

• consider a resolution supporting the Municipal Association of South Carolina’s legislative agenda to direct more local decision making to locally elected officials; and

• consider a resolution supporting Amtrak as a community partner.

The work session will begin at 4 p.m.; the regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held on the second floor of Camden City Hall, 1000 Lyttleton St., and are open to the public.
