Lochmere Lakeside Front Entrance Sign

 

The Facilities Committee is planning a major update and phased replacement of the entrance and various neighborhood signs in Lochmere. The Committee is responsible for our 42 existing signs as well as overseeing trails, playgrounds, bridges, guard rails, sign lighting, benches, dog stations, drainage culverts etc.,

The three main entrance signs considered to represent a priority for replacement, due to their existing condition and prominent location, are

  • The Lochmere Highlands sign off Kildaire Farms Road
  • The main Lochmere sign along Cary Parkway
  • The sign that has been removed on Piney Plains Road

These main entrance signs are larger than the other neighborhood signs and some have lighting.  

We have been working with our original supplier of signs, Woodgraphics, to enhance the appearance of these signs and make them from a synthetic material that will last longer than the original and replacement wood signs. We have also been working with the Lochmere Board and the Town of Cary to plan for a phased replacement of our signs as they degrade.

The other main entrance signs off Kildaire Farms Road and other neighborhood signs (42 total) are in better condition and are planned to be replaced later when funding is available. Since most signs are in the medians, there are traffic and other restrictions about height, position, and safety, in addition to aesthetics.

We are asking for comments regarding the conceptual designs that we have developed with Woodgraphics. The proposed designs are shown below:

  • Attachment A – Size comparisons of the current signs versus the proposed new signs.
  • Attachment B – Lochmere concept signs for main entrances.
  • Attachment C – Smaller neighborhood signs with the addition of the name “Lochmere” added   (Neighborhood emblems removed).

Your input is requested in order to proceed with the approval process with the Board and the Town of Cary. We request your comments be submitted by July 16, 2018 to move this project forward.

We are only asking for feedback on these concept drawings.  Comments should be sent to Lochmere Community Manager, Andy Siouville, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

pizza party

Traditional schools are already out on their summer vacation and year-round schools will soon be taking a one-week summer break.

To celebrate this fun-time of the year, Lochmere Association will be hosting a pizza party at the Lochwood facility on Saturday, June 30.  Even if you don't have school-age children, come join the fun.

We will be serving complimentary pizza (one slice per person) at the 5:50PM break. The pizza and beverages are on us; however, please bring a salad or dessert to share with those attending. 

If you plan to attend, please RSVP HERE and sign up below to provide an item or two to share.  We will only order enough pizza for those who RSVP.

Please remember NO GLASS, CERAMIC OR BREAKABLES ARE ALLOWED.

To make this a success, we do need 8 people to serve pizza and hand out beverages.
