Welcome sign unveiled for Bonney Lake’s Eastown

Located on the southwest corner of the state Route 410 - 234th Avenue East intersection, the sign is similar but smaller to the one at Ascent Park welcoming drivers entering the city from the east.

Now you are welcome no matter which way you enter the city.

The City of Bonney Lake officially unveiled a welcome sign at the Eastown entrance to the city on Tuesday.

Located on the southwest corner of the state Route 410 – 234th Avenue East intersection, the sign is similar but smaller to the one at Ascent Park welcoming drivers entering the city from the east.

The sign was originally designed for Ascent Park, but officials realized it was too small to be paired with the statue at the park and put the sign in storage until it could be located on the other side of the city following the SR410 widening project that wrapped up earlier this year.

Facilities & Special Projects Manager Gary Leaf estimated the total cost of the sign and project to be $20,000.

The sign sits on a city right-of-way so there was no cost for the land, but city officials were sure to thank Eastown landowner Bob Stobie who allowed city workers access to the site through his land.
