During a brief respite in the rain, I drove to city hall to sketch a sign. The weekly theme in the USk flickr pool is “street sign”. While this isn’t strictly a street sign, it is a sign in a parking lot.
This illustrates the local Police Department’s new Safe Exchange Program. When I first heard the term, I though perhaps we were to have a needle exchange program. Nope.
Here’s the news report:
“The upper parking lot of the City Hall has been designated as a Safe Exchange location. A Safe Exchange location provides a meeting place where people engaged in face-to-face transactions originating on online sites such as Craigslist or OfferUp can complete their transactions in a safe, open location. The area can also be used by for those involved in child custody exchanges.
The City Hall lot was chosen due to it’s 24 hour access and police department presence. There are several signs indicating the Safe Exchange area”
I think that is an excellent idea.
