Perking up 'Pearl' sign

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 known tomorrow.

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.
