The design for a large road sign to welcome people to Orange has won support from Orange City Council - but the cost, size and final appearance are yet to be determined.
The latest of several designs shown to councillors on Tuesday night was supported.
However, councillors have called for costings and the likely size of the structure before approving its construction.
The sign is to be placed at the intersection of the Mitchell Highway and the Northern Distributor Road on the eastern approach to town.
The steel sheeting sign would be based on a bluestone wall and feature three green banners which would be changed to different colours to suit Orange events or changing seasons.
However, Cr Tony Mileto asked they be replaced by the Australian and Indigenous flags and one representing Orange.
Cr Stephen Nugent called for recognition of the Wiradjuri people on the sign.
Cr Kevin Duffy said he wanted information about the ambience of the area in which it would be placed.
Mayor Cr Reg Kidd said more information on the sign was needed.
"What size, how big, what cost?" he said.
CEO David Waddell said a report with costings would be prepared.
That includes adding nearly 40 properties in Orange and Huntley to the heritage list.
Council also agreed to progress an application to rezone land on Leeds Parade for a potential fast food hub to the next stage.
