New welcome sign being built for Logan at significantly lower cost

An artist's rendering of the new Logan welcome sign that will be in the south part of Logan.

When travelers come into Logan driving north from Brigham City there is nothing to identify that they are entering Logan. This has always bothered Logan Mayor Craig Petersen and other people as well. Now the mayor says that will change.

On the Speak to the Mayor program Wednesday on KVNU, Petersen said if you go out south just across from the Logan River Golf Course you will see a sign that is under construction.

<span>”It’s about 35 or 40 feet long and about five feet high,” Petersen explained. “Ultimately, it will have stone work on it and ‘Logan City.’ It will be back lit and that will be our gateway sign to Logan City.”</span>

<span>Petersen said that the sign currently under construction is different than one originally proposed several years ago.</span>

<span>”What I’m excited about is a number of years ago the city actually commissioned a plan for a fairly substantial sign,” he continued. “The plan itself cost about $20,000 and the sign itself would have been $100,000-$150,000.</span>

<span>”Needless to say we didn’t have the money to do that. The one that we’re now doing, presently, will cost us less than $20,000.”</span>

Petersen said most of the work is being done in-house and he’s excited about the project.
