One of the new designs for the OB Sign.

The OB Sign in better days.

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.

Here are a few of the new designs (from Channel 10 Michael Chen’s report):

And here’s another partial new design:
