Sign for the West Bench
The idea arose a couple of years ago to install a sign at the bottom of West Bench Hill Road. As I see it, the sign could serve three purposes:
- Commemorate the establishment of the West Bench as a Veterans' Land Act project. In this sense, it is Part B of the Selby Park tribute.
- Mark the starting point of the walking path.
- Better establish the idea of the West Bench (broadly defined to include Sage Mesa, Husula Highlands, etc.) as a place distinct from Penticton.
Given these objectives, we have been toying with a few potential designs. Below is a photo of the West Bench Hill Road as now seen by traffic heading to Kelowna on Highway 97 (see note 1):
