The West Brattleboro Association (WBA) is a group of business owners and residents interested in promoting commerce in the village and assuring that it is a safe, healthy, attractive and prosperous place – both for the community and visitors. And they have decided one way to get traffic to take a look at West Brattleboro is to place attractive signage welcoming people to it.
With the help of Keene Signworx the WBA has developed a design for the new, free-standing signs.
The association plans to place them on town-owned land just west of the triangle at the Creamery Bridge and at the western end of the village on the property occupied by the Chelsea Royal Diner (courtesy of owner Todd Darrah) so visitors coming eastbound will benefit. The primary image in the signs will be a handsome graphic of the Creamery Bridge.
The estimate for these signs is approximately $3,000 each, and the group is currently raising money
to help make it a reality. They would like to place the signage later this spring and are hoping the community will want to participate. The WBA will also be specifically requesting contributions from businesses along the Route 9
corridor. If you wish to make a donation, please send a check (made out to the West Brattleboro Association) to WBA Treasurer Stewart McDermet at 62 Butterfield Road, Dummerston, VT 05301. Or for more information, contact WBA President Michael Bosworth at 802-258-6475.
