It’s time for the public to vote on the short-listed entries in the City of Nelson’s design competition to replace the welcome signs at the three entrances to the city.
Last year the city decided the current signs needed replacing, and conducted a public survey about themes and designs. The existing signs were originally designed and carved by the late Art Waldie in 1968 and then replicated and replaced in 2001.
The competition was launched in July. Over two rounds of the competition, 30 entries have been shortlisted to four, pictured here.
The voting deadline is Dec. 22. For more information about the design options and how to vote go to https://www.nelson.ca/887/Welcome-to-Nelson-Sign—-Design-Competit.
