Future of Cottage Grove Landmark Remains Uncertain

A part of Cottage Grove's history could soon become history.

The famous sign for the Cottage View Drive-in along Highway 61 must be taken down by April. After more than 40 years the drive in closed last fall and a new Walmart will be built on the land. The owner of theater is giving the sign to Cottage Grove. At this point the city doesn't know what it will do with the sign. The city would like to keep the sign in Cottage Grove in a public place or in a private development.

The city council is expected to make a decision on the sign in the next few months.
