Six signs to be installed leading to Visitor Center

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

Barbourville’s Tourist Commission has plans to install six signs leading the way to its Visitor Center on High Street.

The commission met Monday and decided the signs will mostly be installed on state highways and it will contact the state highway department for having them installed.

At the beginning of the meeting, Pam Hash, of Viamedia, explained how the commission could use it, a business to put together cable television commercials.

The commission listened, but chose not at the time to enter into television commercials.

In other work the painted quilt squares from the Civil Interpretive Park were discussed.

Barbourville Mayor David Thompson said the squares should be removed and then came up the discussion of repainting the squares which are fading out.

The commission agreed to have that done.

The project Music in the Air was discussed, noting that the installing railings and steps are on the way to be finished as well as stain and weatherizing of the wood and the area around the stage/deck and the area be landscaped.

In new business the commission agreed to sponsor the Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky by providing $200.

And the commission addressed the need for two more members of the six persons on the board.

The next meeting will be Sept. 10, 2012.
