New "Welcome To Gloucester County" Signs Greet Motorists The signs are good for business and community

(Westville, NJ) - Now you will know when you enter Gloucester County. Gloucester County Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney, Liaison to the Gloucester County Improvement Authority, announced that 10 new Welcome to Gloucester County Signs have already been erected and approximately 30 more will go up in the coming months.

"It is a positive attribute for business and the communities to have Welcome to Gloucester County Signs to greet them into our county," said Freeholder Director Sweeney. "A Welcome Sign is like a front door, you want it to be appealing.  Some of our signs were so old the letters had come off of them," Director Sweeney said.

Sweeney said, "Some signs will replace existing old signs, and some will be in places there was never a sign to welcome you to Gloucester County.  We have grown so much as a county over the past decade that we really needed something for newer residents to know where the county lines are, and for business and industry. The new signs were a result of our branding study and we thought it was a great idea. We want people to come here and know they are here, we are proud of Gloucester County," stated Sweeney.

The newly installed signs are located at:

Rt. 544 Deptford Twp.  Clements Bridge about 500 feet west of Rt 42 westbound
