The City of Westfield announced today they are the recipients of a grant from the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The City applied for a federal Highway Improvement Program grant in conjunction with Hamilton County and was awarded a $98,843 grant which includes a 10% city matching of $9,885. These funds will be used to replace street signs and other signage in several of the older subdivisions in Westfield.
“Because the City of Westfield GIS inventoried all subdivisions signs, it was easy to retrieve data for 24 subdivisions on 573 regulatory, warning and guide signs for non-federal streets meeting the retro-reflectivity requirements,” says Leane Welsh with the City’s Informatics Department.
The grant was approved by the Federal Highway Administration through the MPO on September 10. Signage replacement should begin spring, 2011. Below is the list of Westfield Subdivisions in which all signage will be replaced:
