Do you recognize this sign?This sign was originally located on South Pacific Hwy., just south of Oak Street in Phoenix. Many of you may recall that it was used by Adam’s Same Ole Place, and more recently, by the People’s Market. The sign was removed and carefully restored by John Deller, of Wisdom Signs in Phoenix, and has new paint and LED lights. Tony Chavez, of King Hat Pinstriping in Phoenix worked on metal restoration and artwork for the sign. A big thank you to Superior Carpet, who agreed to use this vintage sign for their new location opening in early 2017, at 133 S. Main Street in Phoenix. Phoenix Urban Renewal Agency coordinated the effort to save this piece of local history, and contributed grant money towards the restoration and relocation of the sign. PHURA is pleased to announce the selection of Kistler Small and White, Architects, to design and provide construction management services for the Phoenix Plaza Civic Center, in downtown Phoenix. Final design will be presented to the public later this year.
If you would like to use a sidewalk sign to advertise your Phoenix business, contact the Planning Department, 541-535-1955 ext. 316 for a temporary sign permit. Then come to the Agency to borrow a metal sign holder that complies with City regulations.
