imageNext time, you drive through Emory Village at night, it will be hard to miss the sign marking the entrance to the village and its signature gathering place.

The sign at the entrance to Emory Village is now visible at night, thanks to the efforts of two members of the board of the Emory Village Alliance.

At the suggestion of maintenance committee chair Bill Gryboski, the EVA financed the new lighting including hiring an electrician to bring power to the plaza for the low-voltage lighting. Former EVA president Todd Hill purchased the lights and installed the fixtures that now illuminate the sign.

The sign lighting is part of an ongoing effort by the EVA to continue upgrading Emory Village and increase its visibility.  In the spirit of maximizing the community’s investment in the village, Hill and Griboski have been working with electricians and plumbers to get pumps working for the fountain, electrical boxes moved, and more lighting installed.

The sign was erected in 2012 as part of the creation of the Emory Village Plaza across from the roundabout. The plaza has since become the welcoming centerpiece and gathering place in the village.
