The OB entryway sign is under attack – by termites and the weather.
The wooden iconic welcome was installed back in the mid-Eighties, but now nature has taken its toll. It needs to be replaced.
Look at the damage form termites:
The OB Town Council had issued a call to the community for new designs. And the Council reports that of those designs submitted fourteen were accepted; they will pare the entries down to about five – and then place the issue up for a community vote. (It’s unclear how that vote will occur – it could be via facebook.)
Also not clear is whether a brand new design will be approved by the village.
The town council reported that the response from the community has been 6 to 4 in favor of the original.
The plan is to have the new sign installed by the end of 2012.
