Interim Village location signs will be erected in the coming weeks to better identify some of the smaller villages in the Snowy Valleys Council area.

Villages including Jingellic, Khancoban, Tooma, Laurel Hill and Rosewood have been without entry and exit signs since mid-2016 when the old signs were taken down.

Council’s Acting Director Assets and Infrastructure Heinz Kausche said the interim signs were a short-term fix and are expected to be replaced with official destination signage by the end of the year.

“There has been feedback that people are driving around the Snowy Valleys area and not realising that they are passing through some of our wonderful villages,” Mr Kausche said.

The entry and exit signs are about the size of bridge/creek name signs and are simple white backgrounds with black lettering.

“These interim signs are place-holders, installed as wayfinding tools designed to help identify the local villages to tourists and people travelling through the region,” Mr Kausche explained.

Council will be seeking further feedback from local communities on development of their official town and village destination signage in the coming months.

“We know local town and village identity signage is a key community desire from feedback gathered for the 2028 Community Strategic Plan and we will be seeking community consultation before they are designed,” Mr Kausche said.
