The Ocean Beach Town Council has been sponsoring a contest for a new OB Entry Way sign, with allegations that the current one is falling apart due to termites and weather, etc. The Town Council board – a private organization – has decided on five finalists for a new sign to grace the entry way to Ocean Beach.
Only Town Council members will be allowed to vote – on the sign that represents the entire community. The Council is asking folks to go to their website and then make constructive comments on their facebook page. You can also make comments here to this article, and you can vote for the finalists in our poll – started today, Jan. 24th.
Here is the OBTC statement on the finalists – this is from their website:
OB Entry Sign Finalists
The current Ocean Beach entryway sign has been weathered by 20+ years of sea air and termite damage.
We now have five finalists for the sign (including keeping the same design, but refurbishing it)!
Only members of the OB Town Council can cast an official vote for their favorite, so become a member today and vote! (OBTC website to join page here.)
Either way, please post your constructive and respectful comments on Facebook — it is the best way to let members know your favorites!
Option 1 (in no particular order): Keep the same design, but renovate the sign. The wood in the current sign has rotted and it must be replaced, but members of the Council can vote to keep the same design.
Option 2: Stained Glass with Beach and Parrot.
Option 3: Current design, adding parrots.
Option 4: see above
Option 5: see above
