|Historical Significance: Originally fairly common these figures are one of only a few sets remaining at A&W restaurants. One of the few remaining remnants of the “drive-in” culture period of American history.
Papa Burger, Mama Burger, and Baby Burger have been repainted by a high school art class, in authentic A&W colors. They are currently stored at the Parks and Recreation Department, near the Aquatic Center on SE Tenth Avenue north of Shute Park. The A&W people will eventually be relocated on Tenth Avenue, on City property between SE Cedar and SE Maple Street when funds are available for installation. No conflicting uses have been identified and no ESEE analysis is required. It is assumed that this resource could be put into almost any use without Plan/zoning conflicts.
