While riding home yesterday evening I passed one more new neighborhood sign. This one marks the entrance to the North Park neighborhood. Like the Maeser sign — but unlike the one in Joaquin — the North Park sign is placed on the proper side of the street and is visible. So that’s great.
All said, I like these signs. I’ve read articles arguing for and against the utility of this sort of city element, but as I think about my own experience these signs give me a greater sense of pride. I know that I live in a specific neighborhood with a long and rich past, and when residents are proud of and excited about their city other good things usually follow.
