Historic Districts Sign Program goes to Napa City Council

On Tuesday, April 18th, the Historic Districts Sign Program that I've designed for the City of Napa and the Cultural Heritage Commission (CHC) will be presented for the first time to the Napa City Council members.

This project is near and dear to my heart - not only because I designed the signage system, but also because I live and work in the city of Napa. I love history and architecture and LOVE the idea of highlighting our historic districts to both our local community and the tourists we welcome.

The signs don't just look good - I spent many hours researching the districts and learning about their histories and the people who first occupied them. The signs will show an icon I developed to represent each district based on what I learned.

The style is elegant and timeless and will be a wonderful addition to our city.

Please join me at the Napa City Council meeting.
