Beginning in 2019, the Neighborhood Sign Program is bringing a fresh look to neighborhoods throughout our community. Many neighborhoods in our community are referred to by their development name. Several neighborhoods had signs indicating these names, some of which were more than fifty years old. The Neighborhood Sign Program is a multi-year beautification project aimed at providing a fresh, cohesive visual identity to the neighborhoods of Middletown Township.
Phase 1 of the program concluded in 2019, and saw the replacement of approximately 45 green signs. All neighborhood signs standing at the time of the program were replaced. The Middletown Township Department of Public Works installed each sign to reduce project costs.
Phase 2 of the program is underway in 2021, and will add 50 new signs at many previously unmarked neighborhood entrances. Existing maroon and green signs in Forsythia Gate and Highland Park will also be replaced. Signs at most Township parks will also be replaced. Phase 2 signs are being scheduled for installation by the Department of Public Works.
The new signs are made of solid high-density urethane, finished with automotive paint and reflective lettering. Breakaway posts are an added safety and durability feature. The neighborhood signs were designed by Middletown Township's own Terry McCloskey.
