SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The City of Savannah working to make it easier for tourists and locals to get around downtown.

Wednesday, they unveiled the first wayfinding signs. The City of Savannah, along with Savannah Mobility Management, reamed up to develop a wayfinding system.

The purpose is to help direct people to parking garages, and navigate the Historic and Convention Districts of the city.

Right now, they are working on parking signs, and when that is complete they will move to pedestrian friendly signs.

"It's sustainable, less emissions with people walking and making it a walkable city as well as having people walking around downtown, visiting all the businesses, directing them to all the locations so economy," said City of Savannah Tourism Coordinator Marija Bumgarner.

The project is part of the Visitor Mobility plan back in 2005.
