Signage: Functional, aesthetic, and here, they mean it

Slower speed limits protect the littlest Adair County kids: The speed limit on Col Casey Drive approaching the Adair County Primary Center is 15mph, 10 miles an hour lower than the 25 mph (too fast in our view - CM) posted on Indian Drive, the main drive through the beautiful hilltop campus. The signs means 15 mph, and 25 mph, Superintendent Alan Reed says, not the assumed fudge factor of 9 miles per hour a few drivers assume. Since assuming office, the superintendent has made it a priority to have better signage; to have more aesthetic signs, without sacrificing functionality. With large street number signs on each building, and planned higher education style street side signs perpendicular to the street and safely visible from both directions, and with the street number on the signs, the campus is becoming a national model for campus navigability, student safety, and visitor friendliness. A hidden benefit is that the campus will be greener, and first response teams won't be burdened with additional training costs.
