Do you know the history of the Oxley Highway gateway sculpture?
If you don't, the answer is on the way.
Mayor Peta Pinson is keen to find out about the sculpture's history after approaches by residents.
She raised the matter at Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's March 18 meeting.
The council asked the general manager to table a report at the April council meeting advising about the history of the Oxley Highway gateway sculpture.
The move comes after Cr Pinson received a number of inquiries from the public about the sculpture and whether the sculpture was symbolic of our region.
Cr Pinson said she didn't mind the sculpture and occasionally there were teddy bears and rabbits hanging off the sculpture which created a conversation and was a bit of a laugh.
The mayor said she very much looked forward to a report coming back to the council meeting in April.
Cr Pinson told The Port News she raised the matter to satisfy those who had asked about the sculpture.
"Quite a number of people have been talking about the gateway to Port Macquarie and do we have what reflects who we are today," she said.
"The community wants to know. What better way of knowing, and then talking about it, than through the business of council?"
