A proposed waterfront “SARNIA” sign has been upsized after council approved larger, illuminated letters for the fixture coming to Centennial Park.

The block-letter style design, made popular in cities like Toronto and Ottawa, will now have six-foot letters – up from four-foot – made of polycarbonate, internally illuminated, and able to be programmed for different events and functions.

The upgraded design and installation will cost about $130,000.

Imperial Oil is providing $55,000, and the difference will be funded from an entrance sign budget, staff noted.

Public consultations on the final design and location will begin soon, via Speak Up Sarnia.

Council also approved the removal of two community sign boards, located at Front and Exmouth Streets, and the Sun Avenue Curve.
