Many street signs are missing, ineffectual, or vandalized.
Creates feelings of danger, safety concerns for vehicles and pedestrians, and concerns over
property depreciation for property and business owners.
Tamper-proof designs such as tack-welding could prevent thievery, and increased fines for sign
stealing and increased rewards for finding stolen signage could further discourage it.
It would be important to consider creating sustaianbel signage out of recycled materials to
reduce carbon footprint and acknowledge the neighborhood’s role in creating waste. Materials
such as aluminum or steel are perfect for this.
