Default New MMP directional signs going up?

I've seen new poles mounted at the intersections on the MMP's (at least those south of 466); easier to read signs maybe coming?

I hope so; the current directional signs are hard to read even in perfect conditions.

I agree, the current signs simply don't cut it for seniors with eyes that don't work the way they used to, especially when the light is low or it is raining. Even during the daylight the current signs are not that clear. When we first moved to the Villages the signs were of little help, now it does not really matter since we know our way around and don't need the signs. But for people who need the signs for directions, this will be a welcome change.

I have seen notices elsewhere that they are planning on putting up new, much higher-contrast and easier-to-read direction signs. After 2 years here, I kind of know my way around now but still manage to miss the occasional sign telling me I should go under the tunnel to continue up Morse or whatever. The current signs remind me of those patterned blob prints that you stare at log enough and suddenly you see a dolphin leaping out of the water in 3D but you get a headache looking at it. They where a weird design choice.

The original sign makers were just suffering the aftereffect's, from the creosote factory explosion...at Lake Sumter.

They were starting to put some up in April. Black sign with white lettering, so much easier to read.

This sign change is especially nice for newbies.

From today's District Weekly Bulletin:

Multi Modal Path Signs
The Multi Modal Path Discussion Group Guide Sign project is under construction.
Starting Monday, July 1, 2019, the contractor will be onsite to commence installation of the new multi-modal trail guide signs on the new posts they previously installed. Completion of the project is expected in August 2019.

Waste of Money. After 30 days you don't know your way around, signs will not help you.

Whoever approved the white-on-beige signs was an idiot.

I have seen the B&W signs, and they are an improvement. HOWEVER the signs I have seen do NOT indicate direction, i.e. north or south.

Did they not get the memo??
