The Newton Booth & Poverty Ridge
Honorary Historic Street Sign Project:
The Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association is excited to report that the Sacramento City Council has approved our proposal to create, permit, and install Honorary Historic Street Signs for the Newton Booth and Poverty Ridge Historic Districts! The sign toppers will soon be installed on top of existing standard green & white street signs to recognize the contributions and/or significance of these historic neighborhoods to the City of Sacramento.
To complete the project, we need your support! Of the 22 street signs proposed across Newton Booth and Poverty Ridge, there are less than a dozen historic signs still available (see link below for latest availability) and they're ready for your sponsorship at $250 each. Sponsorship includes a commemorative sign you can proudly display at your residence to further honor your chosen historic figure/feature, and covers costs of city application, sign manufacturing, required property owner notification mailer, installation, etc.
Please email NBNA Historic Street Sign Committee Member, Kevin Eslinger, (email@example.com) with your preference of sign(s) you'd like to reserve, or if you have no specific sign preference. Kevin will then follow up to collect payment (due within 1 week of your reservation). Checks made out to NBNA (or Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association) are preferred to other forms of payment. Kevin is happy to personally pick up checks from sponsors, or sponsorship payments may also be sent via USPS and addressed to:
Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association
P.O. Box 188876
Sacramento, CA 95818
Thank you for your support!
To sponsor a sign, please contact NBNA Board member, Kevin Eslinger, by email at: or by cell: 530-304-5050 (texting preferred to phone calls)
*Please note that the NBNA is not a registered non-profit, so sponsorship is not tax-deductible.

What is an Honorary Sign Topper?
An Honorary Sign Topper is a decorative metal sign installed on top of existing standard green & white street name identification signage. Honorary Street Sign Toppers recognize the contributions and/or significance of distinctive neighborhoods and community leaders in Sacramento.
What or Who is the Honoree?
The Honorees are the city designated historic neighborhoods of Poverty Ridge and Newton Booth. Please reference these proposed designs with summaries for the Newton Booth and Poverty Ridge historic neighborhood markers, which will feature different historic neighborhood homes and figures from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Where are the Honorary Street Sign Toppers Proposed?
Two Honorary Street Sign Toppers will be located at each of the Poverty Ridge and Newton Booth intersections outlined on the maps located at the bottom of this page.
What are the next steps?
The Sacramento City Council approved the Poverty Ridge and Newton Booth Historic Street Sign Project on Tuesday, 09/24/19. The City Department of Public Works is currently in the process of fabricating and preparing the historic street signs for installation.
What does this mean for the homeowners in the neighborhood?
The Honorary Street Topper will not have any impact to the homeowners. Your street name and address will remain the same. Any cost associated with the fabrication, installation, maintenance, or removal of the Street Topper will be the responsibility of the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association.
If you have any questions or comments about the Honorary Street Sign Topper project, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
