generally supportive of the program. Some of the individual
Commissioner's initial suggestions included:
a darker stain for the support posts of the rural directional sign;
the City seal at the top of directional signs be a bronze color;
Simplify the design elements of the secondary monument sign;
the same engaged capital that appears on the conceptual arch drawing on
the large monument sign as a detail.

consolidating directional signs on existing light posts. They felt that
the directional signs and light standards should be kept as discrete
