Project Recognition

When are 100_0280project recognition plaques appropriate? I get people want credit, but does every project need them? While usually a small cost in relation to project costs, having recognition signs do add up to big money.

Maybe some signs, required by law, may violate the spirit of election laws. For instance in the State of ‘budget challenged’ California voters are often asked to vote on bond measures. Once in place government agencies receiving funds are required to put up signs indicating which bond measure provided funds to construct the improvements. It seems to me this is a political message so the next time a similar type bond message comes up you’ll be sure to vote for it. Definitely has the appearance of inappropriate allocation of public funds.
