What color are you? Or..Where is your color?

.iTown Staff

You may have noticed the color banners and "leaf" motif along Canton's Ford Rd. lately, but did you know that each color has a purpose?  It does!  Each section along Ford Rd. is a different colored "zone" that together with maps and other marketing materials are designed to help guide residents and visitors to specific business along the corridor.  Moving west to east, the color coding is as follows:

Yellow - West of Canton Center
Purple - Canton Center to Sheldon
Green - Sheldon to Morton Taylor
Red - Morton Taylor to Lilley
Blue - Lilley to Haggerty
Brown - Haggerty to Lotz
Orange - East of Lotz

While it may be too early to give a visitor instructions by telling them to " go to the red zone", at least you know what all those colors are about!

The color designation of sections along Canton's main shopping area (we hesitate to call it a "downtown") along Ford Rd. is a unique idea. Were you aware if it? Do you ever think of a businesses location based on its color-coded designation? What do you think of this? We'd all like to know...
