Grain Belt sign

Effort to relight Grain Belt sign resurfaces

Body: 

The Preservation Alliance and Schell’s Brewery are exploring options to relight the Grain Belt sign on Nicollet Island with a new LED lighting system.

Representatives from Schell’s and the Preservation Alliance met with the Nicollet Island Neighborhood Association (NIEBNA) May 22 to gauge the neighborhood’s attitude toward relighting the sign.

Neighbors agreed they would like to see the sign relit, but are not willing to use NIEBNA funds to pay for it and are staunchly opposed to any advertising placed on the back of the sign to help pay for its maintenance.
