Elk Grove City Council to Consider Event Advertising Signs
March 4, 2017 |
Adding to the City's wayfinding signs, the Elk Grove City Council is now considering construction of two more signs to help promote community events.
On Wednesday night the Elk Grove City Council will hear a report on two so-called event advertising signs. The signs, which would be built and maintained by the City, would provide civic clubs, churches, and other organizations a place to post information on events scheduled in Elk Grove.
The idea for the program was discussed by the City Council at their April 27, 2016, meeting when they instructed city staff to develop a program for static, non-illuminated, non-electronic signs. The City has entered into an agreement with Young Electric Signs to develop three conceptual designs (see below).
If approved, the signs would be installed on southeast corner on Elk Grove Boulevard and Big Horn Boulevard, and the westbound approach to the Laguna Boulevard/West Stockton Boulevard Intersection.
The cost for the signs will be either $70,000 or $75,000 if the City Council proceeds with the program. City staff is currently developing a plan for management of the signs that will be brought back pending approval of the signs.
