BRNHA has Funding for a Signage Project throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains in NC
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area has received grant funding to develop a region-wide system of interpretive signage to raise awareness of the National Heritage Area designation, help increase visitation, and deepen appreciation for the national significance of our region's heritage.
Community Support for Preserving Heritage in the Blue Ridge Mountains
The project is made possible by an enhancement grant from the North Carolina Department of Transportation and by partner organizations across the region that are providing local matching funds for each sign. Haywood County is providing administrative assistance.
Melinda Young is the Signage Coordinator for the BRNHA's interpretive signage program. She is responsible for adding new sites to the program, as well as coordinating with NCDOT, partners, and others to complete the project.
The signage project will include a total of 66 signs, most of which will be installed at heritage sites throughout the region. Twenty-two of these signs have already been reserved, and the rest will be available to applicants who meet eligibility criteria through a selection process.
Melinda can be contacted at 828-407-0702 or email@example.com. The project is slated for completion in mid-summer 2013.
