July 11, 2016 Lavon Monument Gateway Sign Groundbreaking

July 13th 2016

The Lavon Economic Development Corporation(LEDC) held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark start of construction of a new gateway monument sign at SH 205 and County Road 483.  The sign construction is expected to take 2 months.  President Kay Wright initiated the idea some 5 years ago as a marketing tool to show the limits of the community.  TXDOT, through a grant program, permitted placement of the sign. Collin County also approved the sign as being partially on County right of way.     Mundo and Associates, Inc.provided the engineering for the design of the site and sign details.  Triad Construction will complete the construction.  The gateway monument sign construction was paid for through funds of the Lavon Economic Development Corporation.    The Board of Directors of the Lavon Economic Development Corporation chose this project to assist in identifying the extent of development opportunity in Lavon.  Additional gaterway monument signs are proposed on SH78 at completion of that highway construction project.    Pictured from left to right is Bill Sargent, LEDC Treasurer; Chris Kane, LEDC Vice President; Jimmie Catravas, LEDC Secretary; Kay Wright, LEDC President; Linda Jangula, LEDC Director; Micki Hollien, LEDC Administrative Staff; Leticia Harrison, LEDC Director; Vicki Sanson, Lavon City Council; Pam Mundo, LEDC Executive Director; Kim Dobbs, Interim Lavon City Secretary.  David Piekarski, LEDC Director was not in the photograph.
