Corporate-limit signs scrutinized

By Randy McNutt

        The Ohio Bicentennial Commission, with help from the Ohio Department of Transportation, plans to revise and renovate old corporate-limit markers across the state.

        “The idea is to get them all spiffed up in time for the Bicentennial in 2003,” said Brian Newbacher, a spokesman for the commission.

        “We sent a survey to Ohio's mayors to ask if their towns had markers and what shape they're in.”

        Mr. Newbacher said 273 corporate-limit markers were erected in the early 1950s, starting with the state's sesquicentennial in 1953.

        The commission will repair or replace them if needed, and determine whether their wording is still relevant to the communities a half century later.
