^ either that or they aren't pretty enough...in fact, I'm sure one vocal resident will tell you that signs aren't historic

This is literally true.

oh I know...the same is said about striping...can't have bike lanes or even double yellow lines because they aren't histotic

It costs between $250-300 to have one of those signs installed.

That's it.  In Avondale, to install one at each of the 4 crosswalks would cost about $1200.  $1200 to clearly let drivers

sorry, no money left....was all spent on those useful, but riculously expensive, bike racks recently installed in the R-A area

Neither is asphalt or the vehicles traveling on it. I wonder if half of Jax is ready to really get historic and go back to dirt roads?

^ Texas is doing just that...apparently they aren't bringing in enough dollars to maintain the paved roads leading in and out of many oil refineries...so they're going back to dirt and gravel...kind of comical

The improvements look great. Just out of curiosity who is responsible for maintaining the all the landscaping and the uplighting I saw?

SMPS is maintaining the landscaping in the new park.  The landscaping (and uplighting) starting at Naldo and going north on San Marco Blvd will be maintained by the city (hopefully).
