Wilson Seeks Funding For Signs to Local Attractions

February 19, 2018

City officials approved a grant application for federal funding Thursday that would help residents and visitors alike find destinations such as the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, the Oliver Nestus Freeman Roundhouse Museum and more. “The USDA helped fund part of the pavilion for the Whirligig Park and we developed a good working relationship with them. We don’t usually qualify for a lot of these USDA grants because we are too large of a community, however, they have a pot of money right now that we can qualify for, so they asked us to apply for it,” said Kimberly Van Dyk, Wilson planning and community revitalization director.
