CAPE CORAL, FL - Cities across the United States are bracing for a major change in the way they identify their streets. The Federal Government is ordering cities, from the smallest hamlets to the largest metropolis to change their street signs to make them uniform. Signs that have the street names in all 'CAPS' must be changed to include upper and lowercase letters. Letters must also be changed to a standard 6 inches in height by 2012. All the changes the government is asking for comes with no funding allocated, leaving city leaders searching their public works budgets for every unspent dollar. The Feds expect all the changes to be in place by 2018.
