Redwood City’s iconic "Climate Best" archway is getting a facelift.
The venerable sign on Broadway at Spring/Maples, which welcomes one and all to the city, will be getting a power wash over the weekend. On Monday, the neon lights will be replaced and the structure will receive a generous paint job.
The city will remove the neon sign boards for this purpose, and by late April will put it back up, and add some "bird proofing" (netting) to help maintain its cleanliness and operation.
