Gateway Signage Program
A community's character is determined by the perceptions and experiences of those who live, work, and shop there as well as those passing through. Urban design can provide direction and guidance for development to enhance a community's character by creating a greater sense of place. This project focuses on city gateway signs and landscaping to guide motorists into the community. The City of Angleton has selected Clark Condon, a Houston based landscape architectural firm, to complete City Branding and a Gateway Master Plan.
