Business owners located in the Battlefield Industrial Park requested directional signs in the park. The owners said their customers and vendors stated that it was difficult to locate their businesses. The staff of Economic Development and Tourism (EDT) staff agreed to assist with the business owners request and applied on their behalf for an Economic Development Authority For-Profit JumpStart! Grant. The grant was approved on November 19.
The $4,908 grant will partially fund the two directional signs. The total cost of two directional signs with landscaping was estimated at $11,408. Battlefield Park businesses will purchase panel(s) for $300 each and pay an annual fee of $50 for maintenance of the signs. Seventeen businesses owners are currently listed on one or both signs.
About the Signs
The signs are located at the intersections of Belman Road and Tyler Street and Central Road & Tyler Street. EDT acquired permission from the property owners, the McDaniel family and the Janney family, to locate the signs.
Three panels on the Central Road remain available for purchase.
For more information on reserving a panel please email Amy Peregoy or call 540-372-1216.
