The design of a new "Welcome to Chatsworth" sign won approval Thursday at the monthly meeting of the Land Use Committee of the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council.
The sign, to be erected by the Sierra Canyon School, had been promised during the planning stages for the private high school built at 20801 Rinaldi Street.
If approved by the full Neighborhood Council board in December, the 12-foot by 6-foot sign will be placed near the intersection of De Soto Avenue and Rinaldi Street by the high school athletic field. There is a smaller welcome sign at the Chevron station at Devonshire Street and Topanga Canyon Boulevard.
The new sign will consist of a three-foot masonry wall constructed of local rocks and stones. Above that will be a brown wooden wall with nine-inch high lettering and a stylized stage coach and horses logo.
The logo pays tribute to both the equestrian lifestyle and the Western history of Chatsworth, as well as the school, Sierra Canyon School representatives said.
Once approved, the sign will be built in early 2013, they said.
