Business owners located in the Battlefield Industrial Park requested directional signs within the park due to their customers and vendors being unable to find their locations. The staff of Economic Development and Tourism (EDT) agreed to assist the business owners and applied on their behalf for an Economic Development Authority For-Profit JumpStart! Grant.
The $4,908 grant partially funded the two directional signs. The total cost of two directional signs with landscaping was estimated at $11,408. Battlefield Industrial Park businesses purchase panel(s) for $300 each and pay an annual fee of $50 for maintenance of the signs. Fifteen 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.
Two panels on the Belman Road sign and three panels on the Central Road sign are available for purchase.
For more information on reserving a panel please email Amy Peregoy or call 540-372-1216.
