Lexington Avenue, magnolia Signage

Members of the Magnolia Business Community,

I would like to inform you that I have been able to coordinate the efforts of the City of Gloucester Department of Public Works and MASSDOT to have two new informational signs put up on Route 127 at the intersections of Hesperus Avenue and Raymond Street that read “MAGNOLIA SHOPS AND DINING”.  In addition, the existing sign in Manchester-by-the-Sea that was turned and covered in brush has also been addressed by MASSDOT.  There is also another sign that will be put up at the Magnolia end of the Hammond Castle Parking lot.  This sign is being repainted by a local sign painter and being done so at the property owner’s expense.  I hope these additions will help guide visitors to your business and help with your success.  The request for assistance came from Ward Councilor Sean Nolan, Mayor Theken, and David Bergeron of Beauport Hearing Care.  Senator Tarr and his staff realize how much small business drives the economy and it was a pleasure for us to be able to help in this situation.  Please do not hesitate to reach out in the future.
