The two arrows do not take up much space but are a tad ugly
In addition to seeking permission to move Hope the cow across the street to Relocation Park, pointman Jerry Gates also asked the Public Arts Commmission to support his quest to remove the temporary arrow signs the DPW installed back in the early 1970s when North Pleasant Street was initially realigned.

That traffic project created a small island of turf where the road once ran, and in 1994 the Public Arts Commission approved the art project called, appropriately enough, "Realignment Park".
The Business Improvement District uncovered and now maintains the pocket park
Hope is designed to hold three large football lineman
Hope will be reinstalled just outside the art work footprint to the north, close to where the DPW road signs are currently located and she will continue to face west. The Design Review Board already gave permission for the move but wish to see whatever signage is attached to Hope.
The Select Board, as keepers of the public way, have final approval over the relocation and the removal of the aging "temporary" DPW road signs.
