WELCOME signs to regional towns are often a talking point and can influence those who might just be passing through to stay a while and see what is on offer.
Both Cowell and Kimba have recognised that the representation of a town starts before visitors even enter it – it starts at the entrance signage.
The Cowell Community Development Group have been working on a new signage instalment for the entrance to their town.
Community Development Group president Allan Zerna said the group was looking at having a permanent welcome to Cowell sign with the addition of six posts, three sets of two that could have interchangeable banners attached to them that could help promote local events and attractions.
Kimba are also in the process of updating and replacing the signs they have at the entrance to the town with an action plan for the sign improvement having been completed.
Minutes from Kimba’s February council minutes showed that members from council and the Kimba works manager were to meet with the Kimba Community Development
Group to discuss the content of the new signs and that Mayor John Schaefer was to discuss any concerns the group had about the entrances at the next meeting and to point out Council’s position on maintenance of these areas.
It is exciting to see that towns in the region are still being proactive in the way they are being perceived and promoted to visitors.
Kimba and Cowell are eager to update and re-do entrance signs into their towns to promote attractions and events.
