City Officials Break Ground on New Regional Gateway Project

GatewayProject2Today Mayor Roy and city officials broke ground on the city’s new Regional Gateway Project.

The Regional Gateway Project is part of a revitalization program.  Park signs, way-finding signs, and street signs are all undergoing improvements in what the Mayor says will all come together and share the same theme citywide.

GatewayProjectThe new gateway will consist of an obelisk that is internally lit with “Alexandria” written in large floating letters that will greet travelers as they enter the city.  It will also have magnolia trees in the backdrop and other region specific plantings around the perimeter.

Mayor Roy says that gateway signage is essential to branding a city.
