North End Neighbourhood Signage Public Art Project

Collection of existing signs for North End Neighbourhood Signage Public Art Project

The North End Neighbourhood Signage Public Art Project was identified as part the North End Traffic Management Plan. The plan identified the development of neighbourhood-specific signage to emphasize the theme of the community and incorporate public art into the transportation system.

Currently there are six temporary neighbourhood welcome signs; this project aims to replace those signs with permanent artistic welcome signage. 

The North End Traffic Management Plan was officially approved by Council in 2007, and was subsequently appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). In December, 2012 the OMB rendered a decision in favour of the Council approved plan. Since 2013, City staff have been working to implement the Plan. As part of the implementation, new neighbourhood signs will be designed through a public art process and then printed and installed by City staff.

Public consultation

The public were invited to review 3 short listed proposals and to provide comments during consultation online and in person at Bennetto Community Centre from November 5 to 25, 2018. Thank you to all who provided their comments. Review the public comments received (PDF, 172 KB). The comments will be reviewed by the volunteer citizen jury and considered along with artistic excellence criteria and technical concerns in their determination of the winning proposal.

Next steps

It is anticipated that the successful submission will be identified in late 2018. In spring 2019, the successful design will be printed and the signs will be installed at the identified locations.
