[ARCHIVED] Pole Sign at Former Gull Station to be Removed

The public is invited to join the City of Sequim at the removal of the pole sign on the former Gull Gas Station property, located on the northeast corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street. The sign will be removed on Monday, June 24, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.

The property was recently purchased by the City of Sequim, and, while there are no specific plans for development of the property at this time, the City will be adding benches to the corner of the property this summer as part of the Downtown Streetscaping project.

“This is an opportunity to create a hospitality area for Sequim citizens and visitors in a key Downtown location,” said Mayor Ken Hays. “In addition to the removal of the sign adhering to the City sign code, it will also open up that corner of the property and make a more pleasant seating area.”

Some of the long term options that have been discussed for the property include creating a public space or making the property available for future development with the City having control over what type of development might occur on the highly visible corner.

Until the site is developed, the property will be available for use for many public events including holiday decorations, the Open Aire Market, and a hospitality area and gathering place for other events like the Irrigation Festival or Sequim Lavender Weekend.

Please contact in City Manager Steve Burkett at 681-3440 or with questions.
