New Monument Sign installed on Cook County Farm Bureau Grounds
The Cook County Farm Bureau Building Committee is proud to announce that the installation of a new monument sign on the grounds of the Cook County Farm Bureau has finally been completed. Dan Biernacki, Chairman of the Committee, said, “The new monument sign is modern and attractive and will provide great exposure to the organization for those traveling by the building and seeking services in the office.”
The "need" for a new monument sign came as a result of the old monument sign being detroyed. Back in August 2019, a semitruck, seeking to avoid crashing through stopped cars on Joliet Road, swerved through the Cook County Farm Bureau property, plowing through the old monument sign, a tree, and a fence before coming to rest against the building next to the Farm Bureau property. Fortunately, no one was injured.
Following a lengthy process with the trucking company insurance claim, the Building Committee of the Board of Directors and staff have been working with Van Bruggen Signs, Inc. and the village of Countryside to create a monument sign to increase curb appeal and visibility while improving traffic safety for those seeking to access the grounds from Joliet Road.
Landscaping will be blended around the base of the sign and we have been working with the village of Countryside to add several trees to the front portion of the grounds to enhance the appearance of the facility.
