‘Thank you’ sign to appear at Town Hall

Northborough - Motorists driving by Town Hall in the near future will see a sign thanking town residents for their support for the new Senior Center.

The Board of Selectmen approved the sign at its Aug. 20 meeting.

"I think it's good to have a sign but I'm a little worried it's going to create confusion," Selectman Leslie Rutan said. "Is a sign thanking residents for their support going to make people think that final approval has been given for the new Senior Center when in reality only the cost of the design has been approved?"

Senior Center director Kelly Burke and members of the Friends of the Senior Center, which is the fund-raising arm of the new Senior Center project, explained that the sign has two purposes.

"The sign will be a way of thanking residents and voters for the support they've already shown for the new Senior Center by approving the design costs at the last Town Meeting and Town Election," Burke explained, "as well as thanking them in advance for continued support, including approving a bond at next year's town meeting for the remainder of the construction costs."

The sign will be vertical, standing six feet tall by three feet wide, and will feature Joe the Mouse, the new Senior Center's logo and mascot.
