Our City is about 20 minutes from the nearest freeway with two cities between us and that freeway. Although we are growing rapidly, it has come at a price. Economic development is difficult, and our City isn't entirely unified or have a sense of place (the City has only been around since 1996 but already has a population over 30,000).
One of the proposed solutions has been to rebuild City entrance signs/monuments at three locations, possibly with electronic components so that we can communicate to our residents as they travel (most residents work outside the city). These of course come with a decent pricetag (we are estimating $150,000 total).
If your city has electronic entrance signs, have you found it/them to be beneficial to place-making, economic development, or communicating to residents? Any survey data or experiences that would support your experience with them?
Thanks in advance.
