PORTLAND — “Welcome” back.

A “Welcome to Portland” sign that was stolen in December and ditched in a wooded area of Gorham is being reinstalled today.

City crews are planning to put the sign back up at the intersection of the Fore River Parkway and West Commercial Street this morning.

The 5-by-8-foot sign was recovered after a Gorham resident told police it had been seen in the wooded area. The sign is valued at about $3,500.

Police said the theft remains unsolved.
