Moira un­veils new sign con­cept

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Moira Shire Coun­cil has un­veiled its pro­posed new shire and town en­trance sig­nage.

Mayor Gary Cleve­land said over the past few years the com­mu­nity had made it clear the shire’s tired and dated sig­nage needed to be up­dated.

“The new con­cepts build on the en­ergy and im­pact of our new logo and re­in­force our vi­sion of our shire work­ing to­gether to be a vi­brant and pros­per­ous ru­ral com­mu­nity,” Mayor Cleve­land said.

“We have gone for a com­mon style that al­lows cost ef­fec­tive pro­duc­tion and in­stal­la­tion but en­sures our towns and com­mu­ni­ties can add their iden­tity.”

Mayor Cleve­land em­pha­sised the con­cepts were in their very early stages.

“There is still con­sid­er­able work to be done,” he said.

“We are yet to ten­der for pro­duc­tion, we will need to work with VicRoads and other agen­cies to con­firm site spe­cific per­mit re­quire­ments and of course there is a need to work with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to de­velop their lo­cal iden­ti­fier that will be ap­pear­ing on each sign.”

“Our goal is to be­gin the pro­gram of in­stalling new sig­nage at ma­jor shire en­trances this fi­nan­cial year.”

Sig­nage for the four ma­jor towns and the many tens of mi­nor shire en­trances will fol­low.

“Any im­ages that ap­pear in our con­cept de­signs are for il­lus­tra­tion pur­poses only,” Mayor Cleve­land said.

“We an­tic­i­pate seek­ing com­mu­nity feed- back on in­di­vid­ual town sig­nage el­e­ments dur­ing early 2018 as we pro­gres­sively roll out sig­nage to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”
