Final Neighborhood Entry Signs in Place

With the final signs in their rightful places along Monarch Boulevard and Buffalo Trail, CPNMD has wrapped up a project to upgrade community entry signs. Signs for the WinterBerry, Stonecroft, BriarCliff, Green Briar, and Brambleridge neighborhoods were completed last week. The work began in late summer of last year, after the District determined that a total of 11 entry signs were significantly deteriorated and needed to be replaced. Signs for BristleCone, Kings Crossing, Knightsbridge and Royal Hill neighborhoods, all located along Castle Pines Parkway were set in place in August 2015. The new signs are powder-coated aluminum, which is superior to the aluminum and plastic material in the old signs. District Parks and Open Space Manager, Craig Miller said, “Not only is the maintenance on the upgraded signs simple and less expensive, we expect them to have greater longevity. Our residents should be able to enjoy them for years to come.”
