NORTHERN Grampians Shire Council (NGSC) approved the final design of the six entrance signs and progression to the next stage of the project which is construction at the recent meeting of the council on 12th April.
The entrance sign project is a direct outcome of the 2020-30
St. Arnaud Community Plan and council engaged a commercial designer to deliver signage that would encompass aspects of the town’s history and be welcoming as visitors enter the town.
The project included community engagement and feedback to the NGSC survey, which sought preference on the colour of the sign, informed the final design.
A total of 236 surveys were submitted with nearly half the responses preferring green, followed by blue and then a blue and green combination.
The signs will be constructed of red brick, Corten steel and modern branding with a ‘Grampians Way’ middle section.
Designer Challis was engaged to design the concepts for the new signs.
