City Branding and Gateway Signage Master Plan
In 2018, the Azimuth Group, Inc. (AGI) was retained by the City to support the planning, facilitation, and documentation of an intensive strategic planning workshop. From various collaborative brainstorming exercises, one of many strategic themes was to Enhance the Local Economy. Strategic objectives, or tasks, that were identified under this strategic theme included: defining and marketing a compelling Angleton brand, attracting new commercial development, and supporting quality residential growth.
This project focuses on city gateway signs and landscaping to guide motorists into the community. City branding is currently underway and the completion date is expected Summer 2020. City gateways will commence early fall and the completion date is expected Fall 2020.
Please review the enclosed survey here. This link will be available through the end of May. We appreciate your participation to choose the best option for our city!
