Northwoods is special – one of the first neighborhoods of its kind in Georgia. People enjoy living here, and many of us consider it a hidden Metro Atlanta gem. NANA, the Northwoods Area Neighborhood Association, is aiming to make it a little less hidden by improving the signs leading into our community.
For a long time, the neighborhood has made due with fairly standard signage leading into it. It’s been fairly well maintained over the years, but is looking a little dated. It’s also kind of generic; utilized by all the neighborhoods in Doraville. Here’s one of the entrance signs at Addison & Shallowford:
Branding is important and first impressions matter. The current sign is OK, but doesn’t convey anything unique about the neighborhood and is not even part of the original neighborhood construction. Northwoods needs a sign that will grab people when they enter – much like the new Northcrest sign in our sister neighborhood outside 285.
Now comes the hard part – raising the money to do this. NANA is looking for $1800 for the cost of making this sign. To get this done, the group needs donations from residents and other people who care about the neighborhood. Can you help? If so, please contact me & I will get you in touch with the appropriate people.
Let’s make Northwoods an even better place to live together!
