Your town, your identity, your signage

Filed under Cessnock, Council, News ~ by Press on  15 Jun 2019

Cessnock City Council plans an emblem to feature on suburb entry signs.

These will be installed after Council received funding under the NSW Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Council asks residents to do a quick survey that will assist in the development of the emblem. Each suburb is different, some already have an existing logo or emblem that features on current signage.

You have probably seen “Neath, home of the miner’s lamp” or “Ellalong, Jewel of the mountain”. On each sign sits an emblem that identifies the area. For Kurri Kurri it’s the Kookaburra and for Ellalong it’s a pelican by the lagoon.

Council asks if the existing logos or emblems are representative of your suburb. This will be a first for some suburbs and it needs your help.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said this an opportunity to define each areas identity and show off the uniqueness of each suburb.

He said existing suburb signs have become aged,  and wants the community to be involved in coming up with an emblem.

To  share your ideas visit this survey before 4 July 2019.

This project form part of the Hunter Valley Wine Country Tourism Signage Implementation Project and is partly funded by a NSW Government grant of $1.2 million under the Building Better Regions Fund.
