Signs of Cooperation

In many ways, the Westfield community is a model for public-private collaboration. The latest example: the off-premises directional signs that have been erected at four high-visibility locations throughout the village. The signs are a joint effort between the Village Planning Board, Westfield-Barcelona Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Westfield staff.

The signs were developed in response to concerns the Chamber heard from off-Main Street business owners that there was no way to direct customers to their locations. The issue was addressed when the Planning Board updated the Village Sign Code in 2008, allowing standardized directional signs.
