Dalton, PA
Taken right as a local resident was stepping out on the street to walk their dog.

Ever since Shaun started this series, I’ve been noticing DIYDPW signs everywhere, in my community, in my travels, all around. I’ll be sharing some of what I’ve been discovering in this blog channel, along with Shaun. Enjoy!

DIYDPW is a frequent blog post highlighting global examples of Do It Yourself Department of Public Works projects. These are defined as any examples of municipal signage or infrastructure, generated by citizens outside of state-sanctioned means, that fulfill a perceived need in the area within which they are installed. It focuses specifically on street signage and way-finding graphics, and we take contributions from our readers! Got a photo of a great handmade or otherwise DIY sign that fixes a problem the local municipality had otherwise overlooked? Send it our way. Email (include a web-ready image and location found) to DIYDPW at gmail dot com
