LOUISVILLE, Colo. (CBS4)– The developers who purchased the old “Blue Parrot” restaurant in Louisville want to save the historic neon sign.

They applied for a grant with the city to pay for preserving it but the developer won’t keep the sign “as is.”

They want to remove the Blue Parrot name.

The Louisville City Council has yet to approve the grant partly because some do not want the sign to be changed at all.

The Blue Parrot closed in January after 98 years in business.
