The City is seeking proposals from qualified contractors to design and construct a City of Sunset Hills monument sign. The current vision is a masonry sign that includes the wording City of Sunset Hills. The proposed sign will incorporate some of the historic blocks of granite that the City has in its possession. A Concept Sketch showing a suitable idea for the monument can be seen below. Creativity will be left to the discretion of the contractor. Similar or different designs will be considered.
The sign will be approximately 3-6 feet in width and 5-8 feet in height.
It will also include solar lighting as part of the project.
The sign is expected to be located on Lindbergh Boulevard, facing North, immediately south of I-44. There is an existing City entrance sign at this location.
The scope of this project is for one sign; however depending on cost as many as six additional signs may be negotiated and purchased for other locations. If more signs are made a part of this project, look for those details to be placed here.
Other details and project updates will be posted below.
