On Saturday, April 20th there was a car accident at Stanton & N. Highland that damaged the Welcome to Highland Park sign.
I’m told by a number of people (including one in the accident) that the part of the sign with lettering was still intact, but that the poles that held it up were badly damaged.
By the time I went down to secure the sign, it was missing and only the broken poles remained.
If you know who has the sign or saw something that might help us reclaim it, please let me know.
No one will get in trouble if it is returned. I am going to assume they took it to keep it safe. The sign cost $3,000 to create and install and I would like to save a portion of that cost when replacing it – if possible.
Thanks for your help!
