Street Signs in Historic Firestone Upgraded

Public Works Installs Historic Firestone Guidpost
During the week of March 13, the Public Works Department replaced the street signs in Historic Firestone. In addition to replacing the street signs, 43 Historic Firestone guideposts were installed atop street signs in Historic Firestone in an effort to distinguish the area and invest in its rich history. The guidepost design came from a member of a grassroots coalition commonly referred to as the Historic Firestone Coalition (HFC).

The HFC formed after the 2013 flood, wherein several members of the Historic Firestone community came together to assist the Town in coming up with a solution to prevent future flood damage along the east side of 5th Street. Ever since then, the group established itself as the Historic Firestone Coalition and has been meeting once a month to discuss ways to revitalize and improve Historic Firestone.

Similar to its relationships with other community organizations, the Town recognizes the value of citizen groups such as the HFC and has made efforts to work with it to successfully implement such ideas as replacing street lights with LED lights, installing a bathroom in Onorato Park, prioritizing ongoing street improvement projects in the Historic area and installing Historic Firestone guideposts.

Coalition member Kirk Fry’s design was chosen from several submitted to the HFC due to its incorporation of elements from the clock tower located in Gateway Park.
