The Amite Chamber of Commerce has taken on its largest project ever, said President T.J. Reid.
An LED sign with accessories is being installed at the entrance to Amite City on the east size, she said. It will feature a large message screen which can be changed frequently.
The header will announce "Welcome to Historic Amite City" and interchangeable signage will read "Proud Home of Governor John Bel Edwards, Miss Louisiana 2021 Tanya Crowe and 2020 Heisman Trophy Winne DeVonta Smith."
Work is expected to get underway soon and, weather permitting, a July final installation is a final date for unveiling, Reid said.
"It has taken many years to manage this goal, and the board of directors is so excited and appreciated," she said.
