Town Debuts New Digital Emergency Signs


You may have noticed a new message greeting you as you enter the Village. The Police Department has recently completed installing two new Variable Message Signs (VMS) on both Brush Creek Road and Owl Creek Road. The signs will be used to communicate urgent and important messages, such as wildfire restrictions, parking information, winter storm warnings, and chain law restrictions.

Dave Heivly, Snowmass Village Police Sergeant, helped bring the project to fruition, and knows first-hand how powerful VMS messaging can be. "The new signs will be a powerful tool, and they far surpass the capabilities of our previous signage." 

The signs will be turned off and dark when not in use. When they are used, drivers can expect to see a variety of signs and announcements. The new signs allow the Police Department to use numerous techniques, such as displaying short video clips paired with a safety message. "We can do a lot of different things with the screens to get more people to look at the sign and read the message," Heivly said. "We think this will make our communications way more effective." 

Both signs are now active and operational, and they came in handy for the latest rounds of winter storms. They were also utilized to communicate that permit parking is now in effect for the numbered lots. "It takes public safety messaging to the next level."
