CARNEY, MD—A new sign was dedicated in Carney on Wednesday morning.
The new “Welcome to the Heart of Carney” sign is located at the corner of Magledt Road and E. Joppa Road (21234).
Claude and Joni Elmore, who own the Kona Ice stand located on the corner of this intersection, donated the sign.
The Kona Ice stand opened at this intersection in April 2017. There has been a snowball stand at this location for more than six decades.
Several local elected officials, along with the Elmores, were on-hand for Wednesday’s unveiling.
The new sign was created and printed by Parkville’s Signs 2 Day.
“Over the past years, we worked to preserve the iconic snowball stand and block unneeded development at this location,” Councilman David Marks told NottinghamMD.com. “This sign will help designate this intersection as a gateway into the heart of Carney.”
