Eastown welcome sign unveiling set for Tuesday

Public works staff members have installed the sign on top of a retaining wall located in the right-of-way on the southwest corner of SR410 and 233rd Avenue East.

The newly installed sign welcoming resident to the Eastown gateway of Bonney Lake will be unveiled during a ceremony Tuesday at the site.

Originally intended to be placed near the statue at Ascent Park on the other end of the city, the sign was deemed too small for that location and kept in storage for several years until a site could be established at the eastern end of the city, once the state Route 410 widening project was complete.

Public works staff members have now installed the sign on top of a retaining wall located in the right-of-way on the southwest corner of SR410 and 233rd Avenue East.

The unveiling is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Some parking will be available off 234th Avenue East, but space is limited and residents attending are encouraged to carpool.
