Derry to replace 14 parking signs as part of downtown improvement effort
Councilors listened to a presentation by acting Administrator Larry Budreau last week and agreed to replace 14 signs.
Headed east on Broadway, some of the parking signs are fading and “starting to grow weary,” Budreau said. And heading west on Broadway, other signs are obscured by trees, he added.
And at a council meeting earlier this month, Councilor Thomas Cardon said that he noticed some of the worn signs recently while he was in the downtown area.
Councilors agreed to have the town check the condition of the various parking signs and report back. Budreau gave an update on the condition of the downtown parking signs at the June 17 meeting.
Fourteen new parking signs will be installed throughout the downtown area, pointing drivers to the East Broadway, Wall Street, McCallister Court, Abbott Court and Birch Street public parking lots, Budreau said. Fabrication cost is $31.25 per sign, for a total of $437.50.
