Charming local street to get new, presumably charming signs

Guess which one.

South Pearl Street will get three new “gateway” signs on the edges of its commercial strip.

The signs will rise 23 feet high along the South Pearl near Louisiana, Iowa and Jewell avenues, according to city council documents. Denver City Council members approved the permit for the signs, which mark the thresholds of the commercial district, Monday night.

It’s unclear what the signs will look like exactly, though the application from the South Pearl Street merchants association states that they will be arched. The president and vice president of the business association didn’t return our request for comment.

That’s it. That’s the sign news.
