Main Street Signage Workshop
Main Street Iowa Design Specialist Tim Reinders will present a Signage Workshop hosted by the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) Design Committee. The event has been tailored specifically to the needs of Mount Vernon Design Committee volunteers, but all are welcome to attend.
RSVP on Facebook
Reinders plans to offer an overview of signage challenges and best practices and, at the request of the Design Committee, will focus on these three areas:
- Administrative and Regulation Signage (parking etc.)
- Business Signage
“We are thrilled that Tim has agreed to come over from Des Moines to offer us his much-needed signage expertise,” said CDG Design Chair Joe Dieker. “We are hopeful that this workshop will inspire us to build a volunteer subcommittee made up of both City employees and residents. The goal is, ultimately, to create a well-thought-out signage plan for the City of Mount Vernon.”
A catered luncheon will be offered. All who plan to come must RSVP to take part through CDG Director Joe Jennison at 319-210-9935, or through email at [email protected]
