entryLongview’s new entry sign was dedicated and officially handed over to the city yesterday afternoon, a gift from the J. H. Kelly company and its employees. J. H. Kelly President Mason Evans says that this project continues a connection that goes back to the origins of the city…SignDedication…brick-and-concrete sign is the first of three entry signs that “Project Longview” has been able to help get completed. Company officials are staying mum about the cost of the sign, but original estimates put that number at about $100,000. The sign’s water feature was turned on for the first time yesterday, and the keys for that spigot were officially handed over to the city. The sign is truly massive; Evans says that the concrete center of the sign weighs 23,000 pounds by itself. Project Longview is continuing to solicit donations and other support for additional entry signs, including a major installation at the base of the Lewis and Clark Bridge.
