A welcome sign to Fresno? Wow, what an idea. I moved here in 1975 and noticed back then there was no sign except for the one on Van Ness just over the tracks. I was so glad when the City Council finally decided do something about this in 1996, only to spend $600,000 and put up those gaudy green pipes on streets. They are hardly noticeable. Other smaller cities put us to shame with their nice signs along the 99 freeway. I know we can do better. I just hope we'll do better this time.
