Historic church directory sign to be removed amid 1st Amendment concerns

When Ryan Meoni complained about a city-owned church directory in Coronado, he never expected the city to remove the sign.

“My whole problem was just one word: church,” said Meoni, 20. “I never pushed for the sign to be taken down.”

But that’s exactly what the city of Coronado plans to do with the sign that’s been on Orange Avenue and 6th Street since the 1960s.

Mayor Richard Bailey cited possible 1st Amendment lawsuits in a Facebook post announcing the decision to remove the sign.

“I understand this is a sensitive topic; however, a new directory/signage will be reinstalled after this project is complete and it will be inclusive of all organizations, including our faith-based ones,” Bailey wrote. LA TIMES
