There is still a split opinion on the B'game Ave streetscape and there is definitely a split opinion on doing the side streets in a similar fashion. $25 mil seems like a lot of money we don't have. I do like the old-style street signs that have appeared.
But I am still waiting for the new, upgraded sign posts to be installed in place of the usual perforated steel ones like the one shown here. I hear they are coming--they match the one above (but smaller obviously).
The recent rain did wonders for the sidewalk appearance as well.
