MEDINA – The old sign with its flaking paint is gone. Soon a new, almost futuristic sign, will be installed that will be bigger and bolder than any other sign in Orleans County promoting the business parks.

The Orleans Economic Development Agency worked with Takeform Architectural Graphics in Medina for the new sign, which will be 9 feet high by 6 feet wide at the Medina Business Park along Bates Road.

“It will reflect our logo and be forward looking,” said Gabrielle Barone, vice president of business development for the Orleans EDA.

The new monument sign needs a concrete slab and power for the lights before it will be installed. The Medina Department of Public Works will put in the sign.

The Medina Business Park is shovel-ready with infrastructure, including a fully developed access road, in place for companies ready to build.

The Business Park includes space for a “virtual building,” a 40,000-square-foot pre-permitted building site.
