Short North Neighborhoods Launch New Signs

Harrison West Signs

New Harrison West Sign

By Alexandra Kelley

The Short North Foundation, in partnership with The Short North Civic Association, Italian Village Society, and Harrison West Society, is pleased to announce the installation of 15 new neighborhood signs.

The new signs, which feature the iconic arch design of the Short North area, share a cohesive look but are distinct according to each individual neighborhood. They have been installed in The Circles, Dennison Place, Italian Village, Harrison West, and Victorian Village and will replace deteriorated, unmatched signs that were scattered throughout the neighborhoods. All of the signs are framed with galvanized, powder-coated steel. The sign program as a whole was intended to resemble Columbus Recreation and Parks’ neighborhood park signs.

The Short North Civic Association served as the sign project’s major funder with a $15,000 contribution. The Short North Foundation, Italian Village Society, and Harrison West Society also contributed to the program. The Short North Foundation managed funding of the initiative. Rob Harris with the Harrison West Society spearheaded the sign project by creating the designs for the signs and the posts, and Tim Wagner with the Short North Special Improvement District coordinated sign fabrication and installation. Salsbury Industries fabricated the signs, and Fortin Ironworks fabricated the frames, attached the signs to the frames, and installed them.
