Trying to find the Statler-Maloof dog park, Civic Arena or the 9 Mile boat launch?
There are new signs that are being installed throughout the city to help residents and visitors locate, and utilize, these facilities.
"These are nice, clean, crisp standardized signs that showcase all we have to offer," said Bryan Babcock, public works director. "I think it will catch people's attention."
The signage program is part of an on-going effort to replace street and stop signs in the neighborhoods. During that program, public works officials also developed a standard sign which will inform motorists of the locations of parks and recreation facilities throughout the city.
Ron Demski, public works supervisor, oversaw the project that included city personnel stripping a number of existing signs and putting on a new brown face. These brown signs, with white lettering and logos, are similar to other recreation and Circle the Lake signs located throughout the city and county.
Some of the signs installed around the city include those for Brys Park and the Statler-Maloof Dog Park, Gaffke Park and the 9 Mile boat launch. The signs will not be used for residents-only parks.
"I think it will catch people's eyes, especially out of towners," said Babcock, of the sign program.
