As Quinte News reported last week, Belleville will soon have its own tourist attraction BELLEVILLE sign, similar to the TORONTO sign in Nathan Phillips Square.
Shown above is a design example considered by city council’s Christmas Lighting committee.
Chair Councillor Garnet Thompson says the project will now go to council for consideration of a request-for-proposals procedure, which would ask for bids.
At its budget meeting earlier this month, council decided to spend $40,000 dollars on a plastic-metal clad five-foot sign.
Parks official Larry Glover said it will be mobile, and lit up.
