The Near Northwest Management District Branding Initiative has been developed to:

  • Create interest – using the District logo, window clings, coffee mugs, METRO bus shelter wraps and signage, to include gateway markers at boundaries, major interaction street signs, and way-finding signage, and
  • Support Economic Growth – by identifying District boundaries, communities within NNMD, and activity hubs

Studies have recommended placement for various types of signage.
