I have noticed a misspelled street sign in my neighborhood, The Fairways. The street name, "Las Polamas" is misspelled on the sign at the corner of Las Polamas and La Vista - it's spelled Las Palomas on this sign. Will this be fixed?

We will verify the correct spelling and order the replacement sign today.

A follow up question about proper spelling of a street in The Fairways. Which is the correct spelling: La Vista or LaVista? The post office shows La Vista, yet the street signs are LaVista. Which is it? Thanks.

After reviewing the official filed plat, the space between the "La" and the "Vista" could be interpreted as LaVista or La Vista depending on the perspective of the observer. We are in the process of replacing the old red street signs with green ones. With this change, we will identify this street as LaVista.

Thanks for correcting the Las Polamas street sign. Now, back to LaVista...I have also noticed that the lettering in the street LaVista is not formatted the same on all signs. At the intersection of LaVista and Las Polamas, one sign says, "LaVISTA" and the other says, "LAVISTA". Shouldn't they be consistent?

We have now replaced all of the LaVista signs with the new green background signs. One of the signs used a capital "A" instead of a lower case "a". We have reordered this sign, but installed the original one for street identification concerns. The replacement sign will be installed once it is delivered.
