We are pleased to let you know that new directional signs will soon be installed at Severn House! Our Community Representative Committee (CRC) has completed Phase I of a project to help all visitors navigate our community more quickly and easily. This is especially important for emergency personnel, who occasionally have difficulty finding residents in medical distress. All visitors are seeking street addresses, but our current signs emphasize building numbers. How often have you stood outside your entrance, or in the parking lot, waiting to flag down a visitor? The new signs will emphasize street addresses and will be reflective, predictably placed, and easier to read from a vehicle.
Following guidelines for best practices in signage and recommendations made by the Annapolis Fire Marshal's office to improve resident safety, the CRC worked with three firms to identify the best approach to produce and install new signs at the entrance, road intersections, stairwells and on lamp posts. The new signage will meet required safety codes. It will also give us a fresh, attractive, more contemporary look - an important consideration for those visiting Severn House for the first time, including prospective new owners.
If you missed the signage project presentation at the last Board meeting, and are interested in information on the project's background, design considerations, processes and results and if you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact Cynthia Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope you like the new signs and that you and your visitors will find them helpful!
