Part of the Timmins Branding Project is to create new welcome signage at City entry points. The City of Timmins Brand Committee and the Engineering Department have reviewed 7 responses to the request for proposal for fabrication and delivery of two welcome signs. They have chosen a company and are working to finalize the details of the contract. Delivery of the signs is expected for March 2015, and they will be installed over the summer.
It should be noted that the city would have liked the opportunity to consider a local firm but no local businesses submitted a tender.
These signs will be a great addition to the Timmins landscape and will welcome visitors and provide a good impression of the City overall. In order to increase the impact of our new brand, The Chamber of Commerce has announced plans for a campaign to raise funds for 3 additional signs.
2015 is going to be an exciting year for Timmins!
