Copycats!!! lol Those look almost identical to the ones we have been seeing in recent months.

I know they're not copying ours, as those things are commonplace in many cities but when I saw them I thought "hey, those look familiar!" :D

They look good, by the way.

:lol: Downtown BR has been so behind on many things. To think, this year the traffic signals synchronization at 30 intersections will finally be replacing the one's from waaay back in the 60's :rolleyes: Another example in 2005 (one of the catalyst in downtown's rebirth) the Shaw Center for the Arts did not even have Cable/Internet service for the building; but at least that was quickly taken care of; the advantage they were able to install the latest high-tech fiber optic stuff.

So it not too hard to believe it took this long to get the signs downtown. Now that I think about it....why didn't we already have this??? Anyway, it's good BR seems to be taking the steps in becoming a legit city!

The new signs for Spanish Town and Beauregard Town will be cool looking and unique :shades:
