New welcoming and wayfinding signage is making its way to Town of Ponoka streets.
Town council approved $203,000 for the project Tuesday, May 10 during its regular meeting that will bring signs throughout the town, explained Stephen Novak, economic development officer.
Included in the project, to be completed by Steel Art Signs, are 23 wayfinding signs including specific welcoming signs, information and trailhead signs. The scope of the project includes the preparation of drawings, obtaining sign permits, site surveying, demolition and removal of existing signs and sign manufacture and installation.
There was little discussion on the topic as council had already resolved the matter of accessing funds for the budgeted $250,000 project during its budget deliberations recently. The town is using funds from the Municipal Sustainability Initiative to make the project a reality.
