Work is now complete on a City of Morro Bay’s efforts to put out directional signage, leading tourists to places of interest. 

The new, large, colorful signs are scattered about Downtown, the Embarcadero and other streets and point travelers in the direction of things like museums and of course Morro Rock.

Statewide Safety Systems of Nipomo got the $200,000 contract to install up to 50 new signs, each with its own decorative sign pole. Some are full sized, while others are shorter but all are big and easy to read.

Back in September the City said, “The project comes on the heels of engagement with the business community, Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce, Morro Bay Tourism, Public Works Advisory Board and the Planning Commission.”
