Ardenwald sign vandalized

Sometime between June 29 and June 30, the Ardenwald neighborhood sign at S.E. 32nd Ave. and S.E. Meek St. near Providence Milwaukie Hospital was vandalized.

The sign was broken into several pieces, but the mounting posts remained intact, indicating that the damage was not caused by a vehicle.

The sign costs about $1,100 to replace and are hand crafted.

One other sign exists high up on a terrace along S.E. Johnson Creek Blvd. near S.E. Brookside.

On New Year’s Eve, the same Ardenwald sign was destroyed after a delivery van struck the sign located in the center lane traffic island. The company reimbursed the costs for the sign replacement and mount repairs.
