Welcome to the Home of Redlands AAUW!
September 19, 2017 – City of Redlands, Quality of Life Department You may have noticed that the first of three new Service Club Gateway monument signs has been installed on the corner of Redlands Blvd and Ford Street.
The Redlands Blvd/Ford Street sign project is the first of three signs and was relocated from Redlands Blvd. (1/4 mile west of Ford Street) for better visibility. The plan is to replace one sign per year as funds are raised.
The signs were design by STB Landscape Architects and constructed by Atom Engineering at a cost of $24,398, all privately raised funding. The project is being managed by the City of Redlands Quality of Life Department.
The Redlands City Council approved the service club sign design in March 2016. This initiated a fundraising campaign to fund the signs, which are all binge privately funded through service club donations.
There are three service club signposts in the City that showcase various non-profit service club organizations. The locations of these signs are:
● Redlands Boulevard, adjacent to Jennie Davis Park;
● Redlands Boulevard, approximately one quarter mile west of Ford Street
● Brookside Avenue, east of Price Street.
The current remaining signs are approximately 30 years old and are in need of replacement due to normal wear and tear.
