When we moved to 330 Lynn Drive in January 2006, we had lots of friends and family visiting us in our new home (which we LOVED!). However, we had quite the dilemma! It was always hard to explain which street was "Lynn Drive." When you turn off of Harding Place onto Danby, you come to the intersection of Danby and Lynn. Normally, there's a nice little green street sign atop the stop sign that would be visible for our friends and family to see. However, there wasn't one. Well, actually there WAS a street sign atop the stop sign. See, the stop sign is right here in this picture. You see it, right? Behind that tree. It's there, I promise. I know you can't see it, but it's there.
Maybe this arrow helps. See it?? It's behind the tree there on the left.
This stop sign is situated behind this 20 foot tall tree, so the "Lynn Drive" sign was there telling my friends and family that they had arrived at our street. Sadly, however, they just couldn't see it.
So, I decided that I should contact my City Councilman to see if it was possible to get an official "Lynn Drive" sign atop the stop sign on the east side of the Danby Avenue/Lynn Drive intersection. Our neighborhood has a fabulous little newsletter about happenings in the neighborhood, and in the newsletter, I found contact information for Greg Adkins. I emailed Greg and explained the "hidden street sign" dilemma. I had a response from Greg within 24 hours. He assured me that he had forwarded my email on to the city and that they would take care of this. Being the skeptic that I am, I thought, "Yeah, right! They'll NEVER do anything about this."
Thankfully, I was wrong! Within 2 days of receiving Greg's email, the city had a crew on our street. They moved the "Lynn Drive" sign from the stop sign on the west side of the intersection to the east side of the intersection. See the results here?
