Which sign / name do you prefer? One interesting and important note is that the current subdivision name for this area is in fact "Old Town". We could also go with the option of not assigning a specific name to that area? Also "Old Downtown" was considered but we could not make it aesthetically appealing.

 In order to complete this project we need donations to pay for the signs.
We are hoping to purchase 10-12 signs. Cost to make each sign is around $100.

The signs show the current street name and the original street name below.
If you live in this area your current address will not change.

If you would like to make a donation to make this project a reality please donate at Village Hall or our campaign.
