Lufkin, TX — New city pride signs will welcome visitors to the city after Lufkin City Council members last week awarded a $149,400 bid to an Angelina County sign company.
City officials hope that the project, which was awarded to sole bidder Signs by Debbie, will represent the unique qualities of the city.
“When we did the bond issue about two years ago, we went through a review format with the council to determine what would be the best utilization of the funds. One of the projects identified was city pride signs, or what most people call entry signs,” City Manager Paul Parker said. “Lufkin is one of the few cities, especially of our size, that as you enter the community, you don’t know what community you’re in. If you go to Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville or Nacogdoches — any of the cities — they have entry signs. We want to promote Lufkin and make sure (visitors) understand where they are and have an aesthetic look when you come into town as well as a welcoming to Lufkin.”
