Albuquerque city councilors are ready to adopt some orphan signs.
They approved an ordinance Monday aimed at making it easier to install public art on old, abandoned signs.
A nonprofit group, Friends of the Orphan Signs, already helped put the idea into practice inside the old Sarape restaurant sign, just east of the Nob Hill core. But Monday’s ordinance change is intended to make it easier to carry out future projects through the city’s public art program.
