The South Burnett will get a new look during the next few months when Council erects 38 new town and village signs.
On Tuesday, Council announced it will be upgrading entry signage for all the region’s towns and villages.
The new signs will contain hand-drawn sketches that showcase the unique identity of each town as well as a drawing of a carpet snake in recognition of the traditional owners of the region.
Council said the process to make and install the new signs would take several months.
Installation is expected to begin in December and be completed in the first quarter of 2020.
Town signs will be erected at Blackbutt, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai and Murgon.
Smaller village signs will be erected at Benarkin, Bunya Mountains, Coolabunia, Crawford, Durong, Hivesville, Kumbia, Maidenwell, Memerambi, Moffatdale, Proston, Tingoora and Wooroolin.
A copy of the proposed designs is available here (1.5Mb PDF).
The finalisation of the catalogue is expected to occur at the Council’s next meeting on September 18.
