A Brighter First Impression - New Gateway Signs!

"First impressions are important", explains Springfield Township Trustee, Mark Berning. For communities, that first impression is set the minute you cross into that jurisdiction's boundary. Some say, a first impression can even play a role in home buying and business development. Springfield Township's official welcome mats to the community are making a change! Soon you will begin to see vibrant gateway signs, making our first impression bold and exciting.

The previous signs, made of wood, are showing their age and have far exceeded their lifetime. Maintenance of wood signs have been costly and time consuming. The new signage, made to last, are being constructed with Corian. Corian is a brand of solid surface material created by DuPont. Its primary use is as a countertop/benchtop surface, though it has many other applications. The signs have been designed using the Township's more modern logo, new branding colors and its "Center to it all!"  tagline. Unlike wood, these signs are guaranteed not to fade or crack, so they will look new for many years to come. 

The first gateway sign was installed at the Cross County Highway exit ramp on Galbraith Road. Five additional signs will be added throughout the remaining summer months to the Cross County Highway entrance and exit ramps on Winton and Galbraith Roads, and at the gateway between Greenhills and Springfield Township near Winton Woods park. These larger gateway signs are considered to be the first phase for new signage in Springfield Township and should be in place by early September. Phase two will include new, smaller vertical signs for parks, neighborhood gateways, facilities and directionals and will be installed in 2019.
