Crews from Laverdiere Construction installed a roughly 1,500 pound sign on top of the northwest pillars in Chandler Park on December 5. The black, classically ornate sign is made of recycled metal. It was created by local artist Matt Myers.

“My stuff generally gets sent off to other states and I never see them again,” Myers said. “Macomb is my adopted hometown so it’s good to have something here.”
