In the early 2000s, the City coordinated with the various neighborhood associations in the Northwest/Southwest (NW/SW) Neighborhoods to install free-standing neighborhood identification signs for each association, which typically corresponded with the associate subdivision plat of the area.

Based on the input received, the Architects prepared four (4) design concepts which were presented to the Board at the November 13, 2018 Board meeting with cost estimates ranging from $3,700-$6,300.
