New Sign Installed at UUCN

The sign project began on October 23, 2012 with an email from our then Interim Minister, Olivia Holmes. OliviaSAM_0137 expressed concerns about the wording of the sign and its visibility. Olivia emailed both the Property and PR Committees, but it was decided that this was a Public Relations responsibility. The original sign was done by Marshall Signs, so a meeting was arranged with Carl Marshall. He met with Sherri Woolsey, Olivia Holmes and Bill Kennedy. Designs were submitted and the one you see today is the final choice.
The project was an expensive one and the Public Relations (PR) Committee had a limited budget. Fortunately, they learned that the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Nashua had a special sign fund called the Slanetz Fund and they were able to tap into that for the entire cost of the project (\,285)  After the design was chosen and the funds allocated, they next had to go through Nashua city bureaucracy. Approvals were needed from the Historic District Commission, the Planning Department, and the ZBA (Zoning Board of Adjustment). Bill met with all of them to get the needed approvals, including the required variance.

 

SAM_0131Our contractor moved slowly, for various reasons, including a very harsh winter and needing a custom made third granite pillar, however, the project is now 99% complete. The final step will be to run power from the church to the sign so we can have our new sign lit up at night with LED lighting.

Thanks to Bill and those involved for their efforts on this great project!
