Morrisville State College, Village of Morrisville Partner to Welcome Visitors

New village signs erected
MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — Visitors to the village of Morrisville are now greeted a little bit differently.

Morrisville State College purchased and is in the process of erecting new signs welcoming people to the community. The signs will be located in the park area on Route 20 on the west side of the village, on Route 20 on the east side of town replacing a collection of older signs, on Eaton Road near the entrance of the college’s waste water treatment facility and on the north side of the village on Cedar Street.

The Morrisville Area Improvement Network (M.A.I.N.) and the college have been working in partnership with members of the Morrisville community, the village of Morrisville, town of Eaton and local businesses to make the community a better place to live.

“The college wants to take every opportunity possible to positively benefit the community,” Richard Carreno, vice president for administrative services, said. “The signs look great and are symbolic of a larger partnership the college, the village and town, and M.A.I.N. have forged.”

“M.A.I.N. is very pleased with the partnership we have with Morrisville State College,” Barbara Houghton, co-chair of M.A.I.N., said. “This project would not have been possible without continued support from the college.”

The village of Morrisville will provide maintenance on the signs.

The signs were designed by the college and made by Personal Graphics in Westmoreland, N.Y.
