PERTH AMBOY – Mayor Wilda Diaz and John Bolton, General Business Manager of Chevron’s Perth Amboy facility, unveiled the new style of Perth Amboy welcome sign on Thursday, June 4.
Perth Amboy will install 125 new welcome signs throughout entrances to the city, as well as new signage for parking, pedestrian information and orientation maps consistent with the new look. The first sign in the new design is replacing an existing welcome sign on the south corner of State Street and Maurer Road.
Chevron donated about $3,000 for the installation of the sign and the decorative landscaping around it. The Royal Garden Club by the Bay provided guidance on plant species for the sign location.
“The new signage will be more attractive, provide a uniform look and help traffic flow,” said Mayor Diaz. “We appreciate Chevron’s donation and their continued involvement in our community.”
“Chevron has been a part of Perth Amboy for more than 60 years,” said Bolton. “We have worked with the city on signage in the past and it was only natural to assist with the new signage program now. We were happy to work with the city and others to pay for the sign and the landscaping to make a truly beautiful gateway to the city.”
