Mount Holly’s Greenway

Sign at Pinewood Elementary School

The City is finalizing installation of beautiful new gateway signs located at all major entry points into Mount Holly. These new signs complement the directional and park signs already in place and incorporate our City’s motto Connecting Community & Nature. Lights are being installed so the signs will be visiable at night. All that’s left to do is landscaping. Well done City leaders!
