A new look


Mayor Scott Avedisian and Ward 6 Councilwoman Donna Travis recently stopped for a photo at the

at the “gateway” sign that welcomes people to Oakland Beach. The sign was paid for through a $2,500 grant from the Providence Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau. They also visited the Oakland Beach seawall, where a sign was recently erected as part of the mayor’s “village sign” project, which highlights the unique characteristics of Warwick’s neighborhoods and villages. Each of the white, rectangular, metallic signs, measuring 2 feet by 4 feet, bears a standard masthead of the city seal with the logo, “Celebrating Warwick’s History/Preserving Its Heritage.” The signs were produced in-house by Department of Public Works crews, especially Dave Barber, with materials paid for through the city’s Department of Tourism, Culture and Development, whose budget is funded with hotel tax money, not taxpayer dollars.
