Signs displayed throughout Prince William County could be getting a new look.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) is turning to residents for help with deciding how various signs should be designed.
In September, the BOCS asked staff members to create guidelines for official signs that would be placed in Prince William.
The team consisted of personnel from the Communications Office, Department of Parks and Recreation, Department of Transportation, Historic Preservation, Planning Office and Office of Tourism.
They were responsible for The first phase of the project involved coming up with a design standard that would create consistency, foster a sense of place and develop a brand identity. The team considered possible fonts, color pallets and sign materials, along with various sizes and shapes of signs.
A draft of the guidelines was presented at the board’s February 6 meeting. Designs for welcome signs, regulatory signs, and directional signs are included in the draft.
Now, the BOCS is asking community members to provide feedback in an online survey, which will remain open for two weeks.
The results will be presented at a meeting, where board members may adopt the guidelines.
