Where should we put up the Board?
The Overstrand Municipality are putting up baboon information boards in all the Central Businees districts of villages coexisting with baboons in the area.
The signboard will be 1 m x 1.5 m and we expect to get delivery late August.
We are required to put up these signs. But we are able to decide where to put them in collaboration with the Overstrand Municipality. We would like to make them easy for visitors to read but we also want to avoid visual pollution of our natural environment. Please share your ideas.
1. Near the new camera pole -- but need to be sure there is sufficient room for people to stand and read without going into the road. See the photo above - between the bollards there.
2. Directly opposite the Village Shop - set back a little in front of the rather barren section that was cleared of fynbos. It may get blocked time to time by a delivery truck. But it would give room for people to stand and look at it. A small sign on RESA office wall with Snapscan could also direct people to the board opposite?
3. Approach Gossip Corner about putting it where the old Village sign board was. Would need to probably remove some of the plants to allow room for people to stand.
In addition to having this Board in the CBD, there is also the suggestion that we request a similar Board to go up on the wall of the Men's toilet at the Slipway to reach people that are picnicking on the beach
