People have started putting their own touches on the city's unpopular new sidewalk signs.

Holly Hamilton (back) and Saelin and Loucious Cadieux give the new sidewalk signs at Third Street and Mackenzie Avenue their own touch with some nice chalk art. They were worried they would get in trouble for their work but its more likely they’ll be praised.

They’re not the only ones – earlier in the day funeral director Gary Sulz touched up the signs outside Brandon Bowers at Second and Mackenzie.

The ‘no’ signs went up on Tuesday with no announcement or public discussion and were largely derided as ugly and excessive. On Thursday the city started look at ways to remove them and the city’s chief administrator took responsibility for the signs.
