Welcome to our towns
BRIGHT and fresh specially designed "welcome” signs that capture the spirit and pride of our communities are now greeting residents and visitors on their stays in Bell, Dalby, Glenmorgan, Jandowae, Kaimkillenbun, Macalister, Tara, Wandoan and Warra.
The new welcome signs have been rolling out across the nine towns over the
past couple of weeks as
part of stage one of the Western Downs Regional Council's Town Entry Signage Project.
$340,000 has been allocated in the council's 2017/18 budget for stage two of the project, which will see new signs rolled out in 16 communities from early 2018.
Councillor Carolyn Tillman said it was exciting to see the new welcome signs across the Western Downs.
"Our communities department worked closely with local chambers and key community representatives to create unique identifiers that celebrate the spirit of our home towns,” Cr Tillman said.
"So it's great to see them taking pride of place in our communities.
"They really do grab your attention and complement our regional landscape as you travel through... adding to the character and personality of each of our communities.
"We've had really positive feedback from our residents, and we can't wait to start rolling out stage two.”
