• Marketing and Branding – Matt McCorwick with Pro Image attended the meeting to answer any questions about the branding process, sign placement, & styles. He spoke about placing “dimensional headers” on placard signs and gave examples of East Jordan and Charlevoix by placing elements from the logo on top of the sign. We definitely want a fieldstone base and need to decide on sign material. Wood, metal, or pvc and how much of the logo needs to be on each sign along with which elements. Matt will come back with examples for us for the existing signs.

Faculak suggested that we need a work session to decide what we want for the other signs and placement.
