| Why are there not "Now Entering Dedham" signs at every borderline of Dedham - specifically on Sprague Street at Hyde Park?
There are several other locations that I can think of, but this one specifically causes a lot of people/delivery trucks to show up at my house and our neighbors. They think it is the office park that has Brodericks, SkyZone and other assorted businesses.
Once Dedham FD (backing up Boston) showed up looking for a kid with a broken wrist, among other assorted deliveries such as food, office furniture, flowers, etc...this happens almost daily and it's getting old after almost 20 yrs!
I've tried to contact the DPW, but they say it is a State deal...is there any avenue that can help me get a simple sign or 2 installed?
I guess Sprague Street isn't the only main entry to/from Dedham that doesn't have one of those 'official' signs.
I have started my own a small investigation to check every town line (major streets) to see if there is a sign or not. I know some that are there off hand, but have now confirmed the following:
* No signs at River Street nor Milton street indicating a town/city line.
* East St. has a 'Welcome to Dedham' wooden green/gold sign.
* On Washington Street (1a) at Gay Street there is a simple 'Welcome to Westwood' wooden sign, nothing on the welcome to Dedham way.
