Effective Signage in Lake Forest

Not for profit, breast cancer walk, school fund raising, boy scouts–why not have several permanent signs in the community for these local events?

In some communities, you have temporary signs displaying working from home or upcoming community events or local business opportunities that litter our roads and highways. Is there a better way?

Useful Signage in Lake Forest, Illinois

Look how some organizations in Lake Forest, Illinois handle this. They certainly welcome community events, but with some planning and forethought, they often find a classy and less intrusive way of getting their message across. I’m not saying Lake Forest doesn’t have signs that litter or clutter the highways and roads but this approach certainly mitigates that largely.

Could not other communities emulate how Lake Forest handles local events or not for profit fundraisers? Once this model has been publicized, many in the community can view what’s happening around town.  As one event no longer applies, another event replaces it.

If your community required permits for signage and you utilized this model, would it be easier to deal with those in the community who don’t comply with this standard?

Indeed, there are many logistical things to consider and it won’t work in all communities, but it may help to better organize and publicize upcoming community events.

Would this permanent structure be a cost effective and less intrusive way of advertising upcoming events in the community?
