Local News

CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – There’s a lot of work being done in Campbell and it’s catching people’s eyes.

New signs are being put up to welcome people to the city.

The first one was at the bottom of Coitsville Road.

The signs include solar lights that turn on at night and landscaping around them.

Four are being installed at a cost of roughly $6,000.

It’s a small step to brighten up the city.

“If I drive through a place and see a nice welcoming sign, maybe I want to take a look at it. So when the quarters are cleaned up to the city, it’s welcoming to businesses. If you’re a new business looking to locate in the city of Campbell, you want to see a place that’s clean and inviting, not something that’s run down and deplorable,” said Mayor Nick Phillips.

Campbell has also been cutting grassy lots.

The mayor says the next big project is to cut and trim trees in Roosevelt Park for the health of the forest.
