  • Redmond's latest battle in its sign wars -- revamping of its vague banner sign code -- has finished its slog through the public venue and is heading to the city council. A public hearing Monday was lightly attended and failed to persude Redmond Urban Area Planning Commissioners to change the latest recommendations from city staff. The changes in city sign codes will restrict size, number of days for display and require permits for the temporary signage.

  • The local American Legion Post, now nestled between the new Highland/Glacier couplet, has put its building up for sale. The post is not closing, however, merely fishing to see if it can get a sales price worth moving to a new location. Redmond's Historic Church, former Presbyterian church and on the National Historic Register, is trying a likewise move. After two years of renovations the owners have listed it for sale, hoping to attract a buyer who will appreciate its historic importance -- and its newly renovated look.

  • The committee formed to plan celebrations for Redmond's upcoming centennial have chosen a logo for the events, based on a 1910 land sale brochure. "The Hub' is the theme of the logo, designed by Sublime Design of Redmond.
