VERNON - Coming up with a design for Vernon’s new welcome to the city signs is proving to be quite a challenge.

For a second time, Vernon council expressed concerns with the design options brought forward by staff for the signs, which will eventually be installed at the north and south ends of Highway 97, and on Highway 6.

Coun. Brian Quiring highlighted concerns around the shape of the signs, the ‘cut out’ lettering, and the use of metal, which he said would create glare.

“Unfortunately, right now it’s a little of a back to the drawing board I think,” Quiring said.

Some headway was made on the design, with council voting on an option that would have changeable banners on it.

Staff was asked to bring new illustrations back for consideration.

“Because these are going to be there for a while it’s important to feel that we get it right,” Coun. Juliette Cunningham said.
