Eltham Votes for Sign Design
Eltham residents have the chance to vote on the image they would like on the town’s new entranceway signs.
“Six options, including the original sign design, are now on display in the Eltham LibraryPlus until 4pm on 9 April,” says South Taranaki District Council community development manager Claire Symes. “Residents can vote for their favourite design at the library or can go onto the Council website www.southtaranaki.com or facebook page to do an online vote.”

All up there were 31 entries submitted for consideration and these were narrowed down by the Eltham-Kaponga Community Board. There was a great variety of images presented reflecting Eltham through “the Town of Firsts” and the town’s connection to Rotokare Scenic Reserve.
“It wasn’t easy for the Board to narrow down the finalists, so thanks to everyone who took the time to submit entries, with a special thanks to the Eltham Primary School students who submitted 21 entries and did some great work,” says Claire.
The image that gets the most support will be adapted for use on the entranceway billboards by a graphic designer with words welcoming visitors to the town. The signs will also need to be approved by Waka Kotahi NZTA and there is a limit of the size and number of words that can be used on the signs.
