Oyster-Adams School sign to be removed

(WJLA) - Last week, ABC7 reported that residents were angered over an electronic informational sign that was installed at Oyster-Adams School in NW D.C.

The residents said they were never consulted about the sign and said it shouldn’t have been installed because the school is in Washington Heights, a historic district.

On Tuesday, Kenneth Diggs, spokesperson for D.C. Department of General Services, said that the electric sign at the school didn’t have the proper permit to be installed.

The spokesperson called it a “mistake” and an “oversight.”

They said the sign will be removed in the coming days and the department will work with D.C.’s Historic Preservation Office to make sure the next sign that’s made will be more appropriate for the neighborhood.
