SNELLVILLE – The city will have a lighting ceremony of the new Welcome to Snellville Monument on Highway 78, July 10.
The ceremony will take place under the monument at 6 p.m. July 10 at 2992 Main St. (Highway 78).
There will be remarks by city officials. A work session of the Mayor and Council will take place as scheduled at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. The regular meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m.
The monument is the final piece of the Downtown Development Authority’s first phase of its Wayfinding Project which was completed two years ago. Signs added to the Towne Green and City Hall were also a part of this effort. The monument is a 30-foot structure which encompasses architectural attributes of City Hall, including a replica of the cupula on top of City Hall. The monument is meant to represent the Eternal Flame on the Veterans Memorial in front of City Hall.
The DDA’s efforts are now turning toward extending the Wayfinding Project to South Snellville on Lenora Church Road and Scenic Highway.
The public is welcome to attend.
