What is it?

CoSign is a program that brings artists, business owners, and sign makers together to create a one-of-a-kind downtown experience for the whole community to enjoy. The Beaverton Downtown Association (BDA) has raised $145,000 to implement the CoSign Program, a national program created by the American Sign Museum, in downtown Beaverton. The result of the program will be 10-12 artistic blade signs that will create a more unique and artistic identity for downtown Beaverton.
