City of Oak Ridge to hold two virtual public input meetings on Oak Ridge Gateway sign designs

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (Jan. 29, 2021) — The 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 visitors and residents will pass on their way into the City.

The sign will be placed on the island between South Illinois Avenue (TN-62) and Bethel Valley Road as drivers come in off the Solway bridge heading toward the City and exit to Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Y-12.

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 recording will be published on the City’s website and captured on Facebook. The Facebook Live stream will allow people to comment in real-time and the video can also be re-watched following the initial stream and additional comments can continue to be made.

The Zoom meetings are set for the following dates:
 • Wednesday, February 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
• Thursday, February 18, from 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.
• Will be streamed onto the City of Oak Ridge Government Facebook page on February 17 at 9:30 a.m. where it will remain available for comment at any time in the future
