OUTDOOR FREESTANDING SIGNS
Display the words “Glades Pike” more often on signs. People identify with names (Glades Pike) much more so than route numbers (Route 31). Visually identifying Route 31 as Glades Pike will give it identity and distinctiveness.
Construct signs of natural materials or materials that appear to be natural. The preferred materials for sign construction are wood, stone, brick, and modern materials that appear natural such as high density pre-formed foam or similar material. Finish modern materials so that they are visually interpreted as naturally appearing in form, texture, and color.
If modern materials such as plastics, metals, and aluminums are used for sign faces, construct the sign’s base, support pole, and/or surround with a natural or naturally-appearing material.
Do not use signs that flash, move, have the illusion of movement, contain neon lights, or use large spotlights.
