Carlos Club sign in San Carlos at risk

November 6, 2014 Posted by Yard Guy

As Heather David put it:

The Carlos Club sign is arguably the most significant visual landmark in the city of San Carlos AND one of the best signs in the greater SF Bay Area. For all practical purposes, the sign serves as a place marker for the business inside… but its cultural significance is far greater. The Carlos Club sign is the unofficial welcome sign for the entire city of San Carlos. What would Las Vegas be without its iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” signs? Why would the city of San Carlos willingly relinquish this important piece of its unique history? Just makes no sense. It’s in the city’s best interest to preserve this sign.

A petition has been started on change.org:
