Neighborhood Developers Making a Difference with Decorative Signage
Picture the most basic, standard, bargain basement street signage option available. It is, essentially, the stop sign, speed limit sign, or the street name sign hoisted in place on a commodity steel post. Whether green, silver, or black, these U-channel posts with the spine of pre-punched holes meet the minimum requirements for traffic signage but offer little in the way of a finished aesthetic.
Decorative signage, on the other hand, meets municipal requirements and builds the character of a streetscape, neighborhood, or commercial development. Instead of rusting steel channels underneath every sign, the black fluted or smooth round decorative posts elevate the look and feel of the outdoor space. It is a detail that leading developers are using to craft the identity of their latest residential or commercial projects and they know it makes a difference.
Community Development Projects
“When developing our properties, we look at a lot of different aspects to set us apart from other developments. Time and time again we have found decorative signage to be an added value. It takes the finish of the community as a whole to the next level. It’s the little things people notice when deciding where to call home,” explained Dusty Dellinger, Land Development Manager at Taylor Morrison.
Decorative signage is also a solution for cities and towns looking to upgrade their curb appeal. When the City of Heath, Texas and its economic development corporation initiated a citywide sign replacement program, a primary goal was to create an upscale, high-quality brand for Heath. “We clearly achieved this goal by choosing the decorative signposts and plates. The response from our citizens and businesses has been overwhelmingly positive. Simply put, everyone loves the elegant and classy look of our new street signs. It was a ‘home run’ project,” said Suzanne Brooke from the Heath Office of Economic Development and the Health Municipal Benefits Corporation.
