H3−1: Signing for Businesses Affected by the Construction of City Streets
The City of Phoenix has recognized that construction, reconstruction, or resurfacing of their city has a negative effect on local business. In order to aid the business customer in finding access into local businesses, the city has elected to install small signs delineating the access route.
REASON(S) FOR ADOPTING:
The City of Phoenix recognizes that businesses pay a large percentage of the revenue that the city receives. It is the city's intent to keep them in operation and not unduly affect their business during construction. Fewer complaints are received as the business community sees that the city is trying to mitigate the effects on them due to construction.
Friendlier communication with business owners, with fewer complaints. Businesses are better able to survive the construction project.
MOST APPLICABLE LOCATION(S)/PROJECT(S):
All streets and highways.
