Is the "L" following the street name a new city branding device? Nice.

"Those will point direct people to parking, as well as Lakewood institutions such as the University of Akron Lakewood branch campus and Lakewood Hospital"?!?!?!?!? Don't UAkron and Cleveland Clinic/Lakewood Hospital have marketing budgets??

Jim, it's the Downtown Lakewood logo.

I was excited when the new signs went up, and they didnt have the NO TURN ON REDS up. then two weeks later they showed. Do we really need to sit endlessly at the end of Arthur Ave for the light to change green. It is a T into Detroit.

I didn't know that Downtown Lakewood even HAD logo. Any reason why they didn't use the school colors? Do they not like Purple?

I think they wanted a more neutral, high-contrast color, especially with the variety of different schools within the community. While purple and gold might make great school colors, I think they would be quite heinous as street sign colors.
