City Grant Approves Sign for Shandon Neighborhood. Intended to be welcoming to our active sidewalks and streets, the City approved a grant of $1500 for a sign supporting that goal and will be linked with encouraging slower traffic while in the neighborhood. This grant was spearheaded by Mary Roe on behalf of Shandon Council. According to City guidelines a neighborhood may display no more than 6 signs within its boundaries. A first sign is to be placed within the triangle at Harden and Heyward Streets, exact spot yet to be determined. No other locations for possible future signs have been established at this time. 

Sign #5 was selected at the Annual meeting...
