All signs in Homecroft are being replaced with brand new signs and sturdier posts. This effort should be completed by the end of April. The existing Homecroft signs are many years old and most have become very faded. Not only is this an eyesore for our community, but most importantly, it has the potential of making our streets unsafe. Over the past several years, the council have heard complaints regarding the condition of the signs throughout the town. For over two years now, the town council have been diligent in planning and executing on this project. We have received grants that cover approximately 90% of the overall cost of all of the new signs and installation. This saves the town and its resident’s an exorbitant amount of money vs. replacing worn signs per constituent request. The town would actually see greater costs in the long run replacing signs individually, as the grant we received would not cover such costs. With new and up-to-date signs, we are securing safer streets with minimal cost & investment. If you have any questions regarding the project, please do not hesitate to contact us>>.
