KNA seeks bids for construction of Kenmore Boulevard wayfinding plan

Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance is seeking proposals to design, construct and install elements of their Kenmore Boulevard Wayfinding Plan. The goal of the plan is to create a sense of place in the Kenmore Boulevard Historic District, connect the district to amenities throughout Kenmore and and adjacent areas, and provide wayfinding for visitors into and throughout the district. It was developed earlier this year by Environmental Design Group with input from a committee of Kenmore residents, business owners and stakeholders.

The Kenmore Boulevard Historic District was added to the registry of historic places by the National Park Service in September 2019. It includes Kenmore Boulevard from 11th St. to Florida Ave.

“Kenmore is a fun, creative place with a lot of history,” said Tina Boyes, executive director of the Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance. “We believe the signage you see on the Boulevard should reflect this.”

Elements of the Kenmore Boulevard Wayfinding Plan and an RFP can be found here.

Responses are due on or before 5 p.m. June 4, 2021.
