Not Very Welcoming, Chico

The Welcome to Chico sign was damaged early in the year from a strong wind storm that blew through Butte County. The storm left the old sign significantly broken. The sign sits on private property and takes a some time to go through the hoops to get it fixed. There was increasing damage over the years, but repairs never happened. After the storm, the sign was welcoming visitors and Chicoans into the "ghetto" by the looks of the sign, thus it was in real need of being fixed. I went out today to take some pictures of the damaged sign that is going to get its much needed repairs soon.
