The City of Oak Ridge will have its second public meeting on a new sign at the city’s entrance on South Illinois Avenue at 3 p.m. today (Thursday, February 18).
The public meetings are to receive input on the design of the new sign, which will be at the entrance to Oak Ridge from Knox County in Solway.
The sign will be placed on the island between South Illinois Avenue (Pellissippi Parkway/State Route 62) and Bethel Valley Road. It would be near the exit drivers use to go to Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Y-12 National Security Complex.
The public meetings are being held online on Zoom. The first meeting was Wednesday. During the meetings, 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, a press release said. 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 press release said.
Today’s meeting is scheduled from 3 to 3:45 p.m.

If someone does not have Internet access and would like to participate in person, they are asked to contact Lauren Gray in the Oak Ridge City Manager’s Office at (865) 425-3576 for assistance.
