 HEBRON ESTATES - A vote by the Hebron Estates City Commission is a sure sign that the city’s community center is one step closer to a new sign.

The council approved plans submitted by commissioner Russell Forshee for a new sign to replace the one that was in front of the center. The original sign was knocked down during a vehicular accident.

Forshee’s plan called for a similar sign made of brick but larger than the original. It will include a sign for the community center along with a marquee board for removable letters.

Brick posts along the side would be 14 inches thick, according to the plan, with posts two feet deep. The marquee board would be set on granite and lighted from above on each side.

Forshee said the design would allow for the removal of the board in the event that the city decided to add a new LED light board sign in the future.

The commission unanimously approved the plans. The next step is contacting a company who will agree to install the new sign.

Mayor Jerry Clark asked commissioners to feel free in their search for a potential contractor. Bids could be discussed at the commission’s next meeting.

The next meeting of the Hebron Estates City Commission is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 7, 7 p.m., at the community center. The public is invited.
