Visitors and residents returning to Snellville will notice the completion of a new ‘Welcome to Snellville’ Monument on Highway 78. The monument is the final piece of the Downtown Development Authority’s first phase of its Wayfinding Project. Signs added to the Towne Green and City Hall were also a part of this effort.
The monument is a 30-foot structure encompassing architectural attributes of city hall, including a replica of the cupula on top of the city building. The monument is meant to represent the eternal flame on the Veterans Memorial in front of city hall.
The project is funded through FY2014 SPLOST.
The city will have a lighting ceremony under the monument at 6 p.m. Monday, July 10, at 2992 Main St. (Highway 78). A city council work session will take place as scheduled at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. The regular meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m.
The DDA’s efforts are now turning toward extending the Wayfinding Project to South Snellville on Lenora Church Road and Scenic Highway.
