Builder to donate new welcome sign to Romulus

Visitors to Romulus will soon be greeted with a new welcome sign to be installed in the triangle at Hannan and Northline roads in the city.
Nino DiDomenico from D&G Building in the city appeared before members of the Romulus City Council at the regular meeting last week as part of a request for the waiver of a building permit for the installation of the large brick “Welcome to Romulus” sign that will rest on a 3-foot brick wall which will extend on either side of the message.

DiDomenico told the members of the council that the waiver of the building permit was unnecessary, but Mayor LeRoy Burcroff said he felt it was appropriate in light of the donation to the city.
The sign will be at the entry way to the city from the west and will face toward the corner, DiDomenico explained.
“On behalf of my father and I, this is a way to give back,” DiDomenico said. He explained that the company had been in the city for 25 years and that the main office of the development company was in Romulus.
“Most of our developments are in Romulus,” he told the council members.
Several of the council members commented on the current hazardous conditions at the intersection and expressed their personal gratitude to DiDomenico for taking on the project.
Burcroff agreed noting it was a “troublesome intersection” but assured the council that the signage would not in any way block any vision.
“We are happy to do it,” Burcroff said of the waiver.
