PROJECT BACKGROUND (pre-2017)
The City's jurisdiction includes ten parks*. The existing entrance signs have a hodgepodge of shortcomings:
- most signs are heavily worn and need replacement;
- several parks currently lack any signage;
- only one park is identified as City-owned;
- existing signage is a mix of designs, colors and materials.
Uniformity of park entrance signs is desirable as it informs the public when they are in a City of Larkspur park versus parks in neighboring jurisdictions. Maintenance is also streamlined when the basic sign design and construction materials are the same.
(*the City's ten parks are Piper, Heatherwood, Centennial, Dolliver, Greenbrae School, Niven, Hamilton, Bon Air Landing, Neighborhood and Remillard Parks.)
The funding identified for this parks improvement project is the County of Marin's Parks Measure A grant program.
