COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Designed to welcome visitors from all locations, and to welcome home Colorado Springs residents, a new illuminated sign was installed at the Colorado Springs Airport exit today. The sign is the result of a community effort by local businesses and contractors including SANDIA Advertising, Nunn Construction, Sign Shop Illuminated, CSNA Architects, Rick Volpe Studio and the Colorado Springs Airport. Funding for the sign was provided by private donors.
“We’re proud to share our city’s brand as Olympic City USA with every visitor who comes to town,” said Doug Price, President and CEO of Visit COS. “The new signage helps bring awareness and showcase pride in our region’s incredible attractions and the thousands of athletes who train here annually.”
“We’re so grateful that the community came together to make this unique welcome sign a reality,” said Janet Suthers. “The welcome sign, perched beneath a grand view of Pikes Peak, is a warm welcome to those who are visiting Colorado Springs for the first time, and for those returning to their beloved hometown.”
