NEW — 11:30 a.m. Feb. 26, 2008
The City Council has moved to adopt new signs for the Newcastle’s streets, parks and trails as well as a new logo.
By a 4-3 vote Feb. 17, the council approved the recommended signage and imaging designed by NBBJ, an architectural and design firm, and to begin implementation as the budget allows.
The signs would be chartreuse with white lettering. The logo features the letter “N” outlined by two leaves. During 2008, $47,000 from the construction budget was spent to develop the signs and construct two prototypes.
