Artwork is due to be installed at a new railway station, anticipated to be open next year.
Kintore Station is expected to be operational from December 2019.
A spokesman for Aberdeenshire Council said: “As with Laurencekirk Station we are keen to include artistic elements within the design of the new station to enhance the facility and help portray the community in its best light to travellers and those passing through.
“Our principle concern is to involve the community in the development of this project and we are thankful that they have already offered lots of ideas which tie in with the heritage of the area as we move towards construction of the station in 2019.
“We hope to appoint an artist to the project soon, which will be followed by further public consultation to ensure the final design of the station is something to be proud of.”
It is the first station to be built in the north-east since 2009, when the £3 million Laurencekirk platforms opened.
Councillors had expressed the hope that artwork would be included back in 2016.
A plan, submitted by NESTRANS, shows that Aberdeenshire Council put forward wishes to appoint an artist to allow pieces to be interwoven into its design.
Within a design brief created for the station, a statement said that features could include “designs incorporated into hard landscaping or pavements, features included within the soft landscaping and proposed smaller scale artist features or installations that could be incorporated into the routes leading up to the station”.
