Tier 2

Tiers 3 and 4


Background

The City of Sarnia is updating signs located at various points of entry throughout the city. The project is seeking community input in selecting the designs to be used and determining the number and locations of the signage.

At its meeting on June 21, 2021, Sarnia City Council passed a motion directing staff to adopt a tiered entrance signage strategy for current and future replacements. The strategy focused on replacing Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 signs. Tier 1 signage includes only the Highway 402 sign, which was found to be in fine condition and not in need of upgrading at this time.

As part of the 2022 budget process, Sarnia City Council approved the capital request for $225,000 for City entrance signage.

Types of Signage

Three tiers (or types) of signage are proposed for replacement at this time:

Tier 2 - a high profile, larger eye-catching display intended for high traffic entrances to the city. These signs would be staple landmarks in these high-profile areas.

Tier 3 - an enhanced sign and population display intended for main routes into the city.

Tier 4 - a standard sign, with or without population display intended for rural roads with mid-level traffic volume.

Tier 1 signs are not included in this project.

Design Concepts

Two design concepts have been prepared for each Tier. Please review the images below for the proposed design for each Tier of signage and provide your feedback through the survey.

Number of Signs and Locations for Consideration

Currently, there are ten (10) existing signs positioned throughout the city that will be replaced. The locations of these are indicated in the "Existing Signage" map found in the Documents section.

This project proposes adding seven (7) new signs at entry points around the city where no signage exists, for a total of 17 signs. The tiered entrance signage strategy determined the proposed locations based on each tier:

Tier 2 - Two (2) potential locations have been identified for these signs - on Highway 40 at the south end of the city and at the Point Edward boundary on Front Street.

Tier 3 - Six (6) potential locations have been identified for these signs.

Tier 4 - Nine (9) potential locations have been proposed for these designs.
