3. Welcome Signs - Village Residents and Businesses came together to create a mock up for 3 Welcome Signs in The Village that highlight history, culture, outdoors, and Village Center / Main Streets. We conducted a community survey to gather feedback, spoke to The Mayor and Trustees, and prepared a detailed overview of the signs. Basic mock up below, official mock up to be provided when Village Board approves project.
