Lumby investigates new signage

Lumby wants to make sure tourists aren’t left going in circles.

Council received a report Monday from Lorelei Fiset, from Pinnacle Communications, on a proposed sign strategy that directs motorists to local amenities.

“There’s an interest in improving signage to help visitors get around,” said Coun. Nick Hodge of the process, which included Fiset surveying residents and businesses about the current state of signage in the village.

“It’s an economic development project because signs can entice people to turn off the highway and look around.”

Lumby council’s next step is to hold a public meeting.

“We want to see what the community thinks of the plan,” said Hodge.

Before any actions could be taken, the village would have to consider the cost of installing new directional signs.

But Hodge doesn’t believe the cost has to be onerous.

 

“It doesn’t have to be done all at once,” he said.
