EUGENE, Ore. -- Residents in Eugene have been noticing some strange signs going up in Eugene highlighting “landmark” successes in climate action that haven’t happened yet.

KEZI 9 News has heard about two so far, one in front of the Amtrak Station and the second in Amazon Park.

The signs are labeled as historic landmarks but reference a future date. They envision a future with less fossil fuels and more focus on global warming prevention.

"It was eye-catching that's for sure. I've been around the building looking at pictures of the history of Eugene a bit, and I thought it was just more of that," said Kathy Davis, who passed by a sign at the Amtrak Station. 

One poster on Reddit shared a picture of one of the signs at Amazon Park, claiming that in 2020, the Amazon neighborhood created a solar farm to provide power in the area.

Then, on Tuesday, a Reddit user posted about a similar “Historic Landmark” sign near Amtrak. The picture shows a sign that says in 2025, train travel surpassed air travel after nationwide boycotts.
