 I can only speak of Tulsa and Portland examples as those are the two
metros where I've seen these most prolifically, though if you look on the
back of many stop signs or the left side of the street after an
intersection at the edge of a district (neighborhood), there will be a
round sign (probably using a blank W10-1) with the district's logo.  These
signs line the perimeter of the district, making it possible to form the
administrative boundary of the district.
