San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, Shoreline Spaces: Public Access Design Guidelines for San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, CA, April 2005 (pdf)
8. Signage / Comprehensive Sign Programs
- Identify and advertise public access sites that are not clearly inviting, such as at boat yards, with a standard “Public Shore” sign. For larger developments, a comprehensive sign program should be implemented.
- Provide wayfinding signs to assist shoreline users in traveling to and along the Bay.
- Provide Bay Trail signs, where appropriate.
- Provide signage that informs and educates visitors of unique historical, cultural and natural features.
- Provide management signs in wildlife areas that describe environmental sensitivity and/or any rules and restrictions associated with the management of the wildlife area.
- Do not locate general advertising signage in public access areas.
18. Interpretive Elements and Public Art
- Provide the public with interpretive elements that add interest to the shoreline and create a varied and rich Bay experience.
- Provide interactive or kinetic site elements that allow people to more fully experience natural, cultural or historical factors of the site and the Bay.
- Provide educational opportunities for public access users through identification of unique natural features and historical or cultural attributes.
- Provide public art that complements the Bay setting, adds visual interest to the shoreline and provides visitors with a sense of discovery.
