Signs along Interstate 94 in St. Paul tell motorists which exits to use to get to popular destinations such as the Como Zoo and Conservatory, the Minnesota Children’s Museum, the Ordway Center for the Arts and the Minnesota History Center.

We are in Meeker County and the geniuses at MNDOT will not give us signs. They are kings and control their fiefdom with an iron hand. They are always right in their own small minds.

Tim, I don't believe this tells the whole story. In talking to Dave DeSutter, Mn/DOT, about this, because Pine City is interested in having attraction logo signage, he said this: "Right now, the only attractions Mn/DOT has on its signs anywhere in the State are in St. Paul. This was a pilot program many years ago. They are looking at adding attractions statewide but need some language passed by the legislature in the next session to do so." something you might have mentioned is that you could urge state rep's to do what they can to move this forward so Minnesota's cities can attract tourists. As you know, Grand Casino Hinckley is the most visited attraction in all of Greater Minnesota. If we can capture just a portion of those visitors in Pine City, we can keep even more dollars flowing through our local economy.
