Mosgiel's Pearl of the Plain sign in Quarry Rd is to lose
its population figure and receive a general spruce-up.
Mosgiel-Taieri Community Board chairman Bill Feather said
people had been complaining about the general untidiness of
the sign for some time.
He had been approached by the Mosgiel Lions Club, which had
expressed interest in restoring the sign.
The community board supported the concept of tidying up the
sign and agreed the population figure should be removed from
the sign, as the boundaries of the township were too fluid.
Mr Feather said the Lions Club would look into the project
Some thought would be put into whether the sign should be
sited with the information board in nearby Gladstone Rd.
