New Sign Welcoming Boaters and Tourist at Ogdensburg Marina

Assemblywoman Addie A.E. Jenne (D-Theresa) recently stopped at the marina in Ogdensburg to take a look at a newly-installed sign that will welcome boaters and tourists to the city.

 

Assemblywoman Jenne secured $10,000 in state funding for the city that was used to purchase the sign as well as 450 feet of six-foot security fence.

 

The funding was aimed at assisting in the establishment of a secure docking facility at the city's municipal dock. The security fence was necessary to allow cruise ships to make stops in Ogdensburg.

 

Assemblywoman Jenne said the new sign is another step forward as the city works to improve its waterfront.

 

"It is important to make a good first impression. I'm pleased to be able to work with city officials as they try to enhance their waterfront and attract more visitors to the Ogdensburg area," she noted.

 

The 4 x 16-foot sign was recently installed by Ogdensburg Parks & Recreation and Department of Public Works workers during a break in the winter weather. The sign replaces a worn and out-dated sign made out of chipboard that had been installed over a decade ago. See Employee working on sign here.

 

“The funding provided by Assemblywoman Jenne has really opened avenues in regards to the city’s ability to bring cruise ships here and now we have a new marina sign that is welcoming for those visiting Ogdensburg by boat,” Ogdensburg City Manager Sarah Purdy said. Assemblywoman Jenne, Purdy, and Curatolo Photo

 

Ogdensburg Parks & Recreation Director Matthew J. Curatolo said the previous sign needed to be replaced.

 

“The new sign looks great and it will be a much better way to greet those visiting our city by boat. We appreciate the efforts by the assemblywoman in helping us with this sign as well as the necessary fencing and signage to begin bringing cruise ships to our city docks,” he pointed out.
