Do you have a favorite street name in Stillwater?
If so, the city may have a deal for you—or someone on your shopping list.
The city is in the process of replacing all of its street name signs in order to comply with federal rules—which require larger lettering and increased night time reflectivity.
The city began the process in October 2010, and according to this Pioneer Press report, has sold 1,320 signs so far.
Public Works Department Secretary Beth Wolf told the Pioneer Press the most popular signs so far have been Pine Street (32 sold) and Churchill Street (29 sold).
Street name signs will be replaced over the next 18 months.
A typical street sign unit is actually comprised of four signs. The unit is disassembled and the individual signs are available to be purchased for $10.
The post and brackets are not for sale.
If you do not see a Stillwater street that interests you listed, the sign may not have been replaced yet.
So the city urges those interested to check back often; or call to be placed on a waiting list for your favorite street sign.
