L.A. City Council Tables Felix the Cat Sign Issue

Last week the Los Angeles City Council refused to vote on whether or not the Felix the Cat sign at Figueroa and Jefferson should be declared an historic monument.

Instead, the Council "tabled" the motion to avoid taking a stand on the issue.

The sign belongs to Felix Chevrolet. Felix Chevrolet CEO Darryl Holter, who incidentally has a doctorate in history, expressed relief that the dealership will not lose control of its sign and showroom.

Preservationists next intend to nominate the sign for the National Register of Historic Places.
