(Edmonds, WA) An opportunity for public input and ideas about what should replace the badly deteriorated “Welcome to Edmonds” sign on SR 104 was held at the Library Plaza Room on November 29. Two more public meetings will be held in the Plaza Room, 650 Main St., on January 10 at 6 pm and February 11 at 6 pm.

The existing sign marks the gateway to downtown Edmonds from 5th Avenue South has been identified for replacement for several years. There was lively discussion at the first meeting on November 29th about how the welcome to downtown Edmonds sign should be a reflection of Edmonds’ culture and community values while welcoming visitors that the downtown business sector wants to attract. The first public meeting included a review of sign types, advantages and disadvantages of each, and elicited comments including thoughts about themes, art elements, fonts, colors, and landscaping.

An opportunity to comment for the design development process is available through an online survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EdmondsGateway). The survey will be available through Thursday December 20. The January 10 meeting will be an opportunity to comment on several concepts for a replacement sign that will be developed based on community input. A final Open House will be held
February 11.
