A GOOD SIGN ... Leadership in the College Terrace Residents Association are taking a proactive stance to expedite permits from the city for signage at the new Khoury's Market. The association's City Observer, Margaret Heath, told the board during a meeting this month that she was planning to meet with city planning staff to make sure the permit approvals were fast-tracked. Heath and other board members agreed that the last market to inhabit the site, the College Terrace Market, failed in part because it had no visibility due to a lack of signage. There was a considerable amount of confusion and back-and-forth between the city and the owners regarding the signs. The market shuttered after just six months, although not just due to the dearth of signage. But it didn't help. The next association board meeting is Feb. 20, 7-8:30 p.m. at College Terrace Library, 2300 Wellesley St., Palo Alto.
