State Representative Michael S. Day has annouced that he has won approval of $25,000 of funding in the fiscal year 2018 (FY18) House budget earmarked specifically for Stoneham that will enable it to purchase and install wayfinding signage. This wayfinding signage will increase safety and help to spur the revitalization of Stoneham’s downtown area.
“I sincerely thank my colleagues in the House for supporting my efforts to pass this appropriation,” said Representative Day. “Stoneham has expended a significant amount of time and energy in the hopes of revitalizing our downtown and making Stoneham a destination, not just a pass-through town. The wayfinding signage will build on these efforts and is one of the key items that town leaders and the Chamber of Commerce has highlighted to me when we’ve discussed impactful ways to help the Town. These funds will help us expedite the revitalization process, and I am very happy to be able to deliver this win for Stoneham.”
The FY18 budget now moves to the Senate for their recommendations and approval. Once the Senate passes its budget, the two chambers will reconcile any differences before sending a final budget to the Governor.
