The brand new Olde North Charleston sign has been erected at the corner of Buist and Spruill Avenues. It is a “sign” of grant funds, volunteer efforts, Council input, collaboration, compromise, and progress. We should be proud.
The production of the ONC sign has been made possible by a grant from the Neighborhoods Energized to Win (N.E.W.) Fund of Coastal Community Foundation. ONC residents Paul Ristau and Catherine Heston volunteered many hours managing the project and resident Brent Wilkerson drafted the grant proposal. Public Works and Councilman Bob King have assisted with the permitting and installation. Their efforts should be commended.
And, a big thanks to you for believing we can make a difference, one sign (or smile, neighbor, friend, student) at a time. Here are some pics showing how we got here.
We know, a little white paint, some landscaping around the base, and a spotlight will complete the project. But what we hope for in the meantime and for years to come is that the new sign welcomes you home, invites more neighbors to the area, and illustrates the underlying sense of community we know exists and is the reason why we chose to live here in Olde North Charleston, a Park Circle Community.
