Mr. Tailford showed pictures of a possible new sign to be
placed at all entrances to the village. Signs at other villages
were discussed, and members had some suggestions for the
designer, Mr. Kessler. The signs should provide information
easily read in the smallest possible size and should be in a
muted color. Ms. Robertson thought the words "established 1805"
could be added.
Mr. Huey reported that he had seen informational arrows
added to roads to point out fire hydrants in a town where he
visited and thought it was a good idea.
