Town of Palisade unveils new street signs

Town of Palisade Mayor David Walker poses with the newly improved street signs unveiled Friday afternoon.

The Town of Palisade unveiled their newest improvement to the city Friday afternoon. New street signs were placed at the corner of West Third and Main Streets, at the crux of Palisade’s downtown business district.

The new signs are larger, and feature a “Bulldog” red background with white lettering.

They also are stamped with the new Town of Palisade logo, which better reflects the “specialness” of the town, according to Mayor David Walker. The new logo depicts the vineyards that grow below Mt. Garfield with a peach and grape in the foreground, and was designed by Frank Watt, director of public works.

“We want people to know that when they arrive in Palisade, they’ve come to a special place,” Walker said.

All of the street signs will eventually be replaced from downtown to First and Elberta streets.

City council members have been working on the new signs for about four months, according to Walker.

“Because of improvements, such as the plaza, we are the only town in Colorado showing a positive increase in sales tax revenue — and that’s due to all the hard work of the town and local businesses,” Walker added.

He also pointed out that road work on Klugey Avenue would begin Monday. The work intends to make a smoother ride for tourists coming into the heart of Palisade from Interstate 70.
