CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte's Plaza Midwood neighborhood was awarded a $25,000 grant by the city.

The $25,000 Neightborhood Matching Grant will allow the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association to purchase and place new signage to denote the area's history and identity.

The Neighborhood Association says the signage project has been a neighborhood goal for more than 30 years.

Plaza Midwood resident Megan Debrosin won a design contest through the PMNA, and her design will be featured on the new signs for residents and visitors alike to enjoy for many years to come.

Additionally, the funds will help to cover the cost of two large stone gateway signs that are expected to be placed on the median of The Plaza.

Volunteer opportunities are always available through the PMNA; just visit their website to sign up or for more information.
