JAMESTOWN – New signage welcoming those visiting the City of Jamestown will feature the area’s past while featuring several notable landmarks as well.
The design features a sloping base, which Kevin Sixbey says represents the Chadakoin River and rolling hills of the area. The top panels allude to the city skyline. There will be LED lighting at night, and landscaping with native plants around it. Even the materials it will be made of will represent Jamestown.
“To keep the past alive though we wanted some materials that we thought were indicative to the city,” explained Sixbey.
“People coming into the city with something like this may want to get out, take a photo, and how many Jamestowns are there in the United States,” stated Sixbey. “Let’s make sure they know which one they’re in.”
A project like this will not be cheap, but the club will pay for almost half of the monument’s cost and hope that donations and business partnerships will help cover the rest.
“The current project cost is 60,000 dollars,” explained Sixbey. “Rotary club initially had a pledge of 8 to 10 thousand dollars, I can tell you that working through boards and everything right now our commitments around 25,000 dollars.”
