Guam – The 19 districts on Guam will soon have new village entrance signs as part of an island wide village sign project awarded to Maeda Pacific by the Guam Economic Development Authority and paid for through proceeds from a Hotel Occupancy Tax bond.
Andy Cristobal says designs for the signs should be completed by October 30th. The contract requires that the signs be done by midway through next year. Each village will get one sign at a designated entrance point to their village. The signs will include things like village flowers and famous landmarks within each respective village.
The signs will be protected by a U.V. resistant and anti-grafiti coating on an aluminum sheet bolted onto a concrete base.
“What we have tried to do is give each village a special sign so each village really has a unique design so there’s no village sign that’s gonna be the same we’ve picked up the icons of the main interest of the village and tried to put that on the sign itself,” said Cristobal.
The designs were based on research of each village’s history and input from the mayors.
