New look in the works for downtown signage

BAR HARBOR — A network of downtown way-finding signs and display banners are to be developed by a professional design firm, after town councilors agreed conceptually to the idea at their Aug. 20 meeting.

Cruise ship fee money will pay for the project, the total costs of which are placed by early estimates at around $242,000. The signs would help people to get around better, chamber of commerce director Chris Fogg said, while also greatly improving the visitor experience.

Fogg estimates that signs could be in place by the summer of 2015.
