All signs are pointing to the future for Mosgiel - at least
it is hoped that will be true come tomorrow.
The Mosgiel and Districts Lions Club has applied for about
$3000 to begin the renovation of Mosgiel's ''Pearl of the
Plain'' sign and nearby information kiosk, past president and
project convener John Bone says.
The club has applied to the Dunedin City Council for the
funding and the outcome of the application is expected to be
While the club only intended to renovate the existing sign at
present, it was hoped the project could ''get the ball
rolling'' on the modernisation of the sign and relocating the
information kiosk near the railway station, Mr Bone said.
''Mosgiel is growing and we need to reflect a modern Mosgiel
and where it's going.''
The club did not have plans for the new sign's design but it
was hoped ''brightening up'' the existing sign would generate
interest from the public.
The sign was on land owned by Meridian Energy and any major
changes would require the permission of the New Zealand
Transport Agency, he said.
