Street sign toppers program has been redesigned
Have you ever noticed some of the cool street sign toppers that can be seen in neighborhoods like Fairmount, Ridglea Hills and Linwood?
The city program has been redesigned to encourage greater participation, increased community engagement and better visual recognition of registered neighborhood associations. Effective Feb. 22, the street sign topper program will be managed by the Community Engagement Office.
The streamlined process will leverage existing staff resources and includes new opportunities for collaboration among the City Council, community engagement liaisons, neighborhood patrol officers, the Transportation and Public Works Department, and all registered neighborhoods.
The revised program includes these changes:
- All registered neighborhood associations will be eligible to participate.
- The online application may now be submitted at no cost by any board member of a registered neighborhood association.
- Graphic artwork for neighborhood sign toppers will be completed at no cost by city staff.
- Neighborhood associations will work with their assigned community engagement liaison to ensure the project’s successful completion.
- Neighborhood associations will be required to involve their full membership throughout the planning, design and installation/celebration phases.
- City Councilmembers, Neighborhood Patrol Officers and other city staff will assist neighborhood associations during the installation and celebration phases.
- Completed projects will be showcased in City News and city social media outlets to highlight city/neighborhood partnerships and to recognize the many contributions of registered neighborhood associations.
