At January's Ramona Community Planning Group meeting, Chair Jim Piva brought forth the idea of a Ramona landmark sign to be displayed across Main Street. Last week, the chair said multiple local businesses and agencies were backing the idea.
Piva said the both the school board and Ramona Municipal Water District may endorse it, as well as Ramona's Chamber of Commerce. The Village Design Group, the chair said, has already endorsed the proposed project.
"We did some up with a pretty good game plan," Piva said of the proposed sign, though he wouldn't give away any details. "The Chamber of Commerce would help with fundraising."
The planning group leader originally said the sign could sit across Main Street between 9th and 10th Streets. He called it a "community asset" at the Feb. 7 meeting in the library.
"It's coming along," Piva said of planning and informing various groups. "I think once we get everyone on board, people will like it."
An ad hoc committee for the planning group will be formed once more solid plans for the landmark sign are set. Piva said engineering plans are being done, but endorsements will come first.
In a Patch Poll conducted on Jan. 16, out of 25 votes, 72 percent of the voters said they'd like to see a Ramona landmark sign.
