Seal of the city of Oak RidgeThe city of Oak Ridge invites the public to participate in a series of virtual public input sessions on the design of a new Oak Ridge gateway sign that visitors and residents will pass on their way into the city.

The sign will be placed on the island between South Illinois Avenue (state Highway 62) and Bethel Valley Road as drivers come off the Solway bridge heading toward the city and exit to Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Y-12, a city news release stated.

There will be two virtual sessions held on Zoom, where people can join and view the designs, ask questions and leave their feedback verbally or in the chat. The two meetings will be audio- and video-recorded and subtitles will appear on screen for those who are hearing-impaired.

The Zoom meetings are set for the following dates.

The first Zoom meeting will take place Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m.

The meeting will be streamed onto the city of Oak Ridge Government Facebook page on Feb. 17 at 9:30 a.m. It will remain available for comment at any time in the future.
