You may recall taking a short survey in 2014 regarding priorities for Riedlonn. Residents indicated at that time that they supported looking into upgraded street signs for their ability to:
- add to the identity and feel of the neighborhood.
- enhance visual appeal and charm.
- complement the sense of character of the homes.
- boost property values.
Given this positive response, the Riedlonn Board of Governors obtained and evaluated three quotes for street signs. Through this process, the board identified a local, well-respected vendor who has worked with other area neighborhoods and knows the regulatory parameters of the Department of Public Works. You may view samples of the company’s street signs here, and the above image shows possible designs for Riedlonn street signs (click here to view larger).
At this point, we are reaching out to our friends and neighbors to share our findings. In order to move forward, we would need to raise $16,000 for the cast aluminum signs, which cost a bit more than other options but are expected to wear much better.
Plans call for these funds to be raised through a suggested donation of $140 per household. This donation is not tax deductible and would be added to the 2016 dues. If the funds are raised this spring, work to replace the existing signs could begin as early as this summer.
However, if the full amount is not raised, we may pursue less expensive options. If no option is funded, we will return any money collected. We will provide regular fundraising updates and share any construction dates as possible.
If you have any questions or comments about the project, please contact either your governor or firstname.lastname@example.org.
