What’s wrong: Peeling community signs.

Who’s responsible? Shaune MacKinlay, HRM corporate messaging gatekeeper, 490-6531.

Remarks: A reader sent us this picture of the peeling Timberlea sign, but we’ve seen plenty of others in similar condition throughout HRM. MacKinlay says the signs use coated paper over a wood base that “we were assured would withstand the elements.” Alas, the city wise likewise assured an $8 million underpass and successful Common concerts but, hey, that’s the way thing roll. About 20 of the signs are replaced each year, and Timberlea’s already on order.
