I love the new Salemtown signs. This kind of tasteful signage gives a community or neighborhood a priceless sense of identity and dignity. Congratulations to the Salemtown neighborhood!
That sign looks extremely silly and inappropriate. Salemtown = Sesame Street?
why no new signs / lights for those of us east of 5th?
There are signs east of 5th on 4th, 3rd, Hume, Buchanan, & Coffee. There was also one at the corner of 3rd & Garfield, but a vehicle knocked it down. All of the neighborhood ID signs were installed around the perimeter of the neighborhood on all sides.The lights were the most expensive element of the streetscape plan. We voted several times on elements, and "more lighting" was always near the top of the final tallies, even though neighbors were warned about costs. The committee was faced with a choice of either locating lights everywhere we could & having no other streetscape elements or strategically placing them at main entrance/exit thoroughfares. We chose the latter, & the engineer designed them for Garfield (from RPB to 5th) & for 5th (from Hume to Garfield), since those are the main pedestrian & vehicular traffic arteries of the neighborhood.
