Save the Mermaid statue from top of the Mermaid in Mounds View!

This petition had 2,187 supporters

The fiber glass mermaid statue that sits on top of Mermaid in Mounds View, MN has been a long standing icon and landmark for over 50+ years. She blew over in a tornado sometime in the late 70's early 80's but alas she was fixed and put back in her home. She's had arrows shot at her and she's been touched up many times throughout the years.  The new owners of the Mermaid feel that she is beyond repair and have taken this landmark down and are not disclosing her final resting place. It is believed they are rebranding the establishment to entice a different crowd. What they don't realize is what she means to the countless customers and current and former employees. She's even featured on the Minnesota Historical Society's Web page of Roadside Architecture Adervertising.  

The Facebook post from the Mermaid suggests that she's beyond repair, but we don't buy it. 

Please sign this petition and let's show the current owners that removing and discarding a historic piece of Mounds View (and northern Twin Cities suburbs) is not okay with us!
