The City of Palm Bay’s City Council and City Management recently initiated The Sign Program. The goal of this program is to replace street name signs and stop signs throughout the City over the next 2 ½ years. The program officially started in March 2007 and is expected to be completed in September 2009. The Traffic Operations staff developed the schedule for sign replacement based on the age of the signs in the Port Malabar Units, with the oldest signs being replaced first. After replacement, the more than 20,000 street name signs and stop signs will be placed on a seven-year rotation for maintenance.
The replacement street name signs are increasing in size from 6” tall to 9” tall, and will be more durable and more reflective. Main road signs will have the City Logo placed on them. The City’s Traffic Operations employs eight staff members who produce all the street name signs and installs all the street name and stop signs on-site. The Traffic Operations staff coordinates their production and installation efforts to stay on schedule and provide our Citizens the safety and security that highly visible street name signs and stop signs provide.
