The city of Quincy is exploring a project to help people navigate the downtown area

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - The city of Quincy is looking into a project that would help residents and visitors get around the downtown area. 

City Planner Chuck Bevelheimer said the city will hire a consultant to make a plan to set up signs and kiosks around the downtown area to direct people to certain locations.

Places include healthcare facilities, tourist attractions and government buildings. Bevelheimer said the plan will benefit many people.

"It's for both tourists who may not know where they are going or it maybe someone from out of town whose been here a couple of times and may not know where the public parking spots are," Bevelheimer said. "We have a lot of folks coming to Quincy for healthcare needs who also go downtown to shop or to a restaurant."

The planning project will be funded by state grants and the signs will be paid for by tax increment financing or TIF money.
