Signs, Signs, Everywhere are Signs…September 15, 2008
With all the recent hub-bub about A-frames as well as the new story about the city adding a stop sign to Spofford Street, you would think we’d just about milked signs for all their worth. But a regular emailer sent me this photo today of a sign on the corner of Buck and Washington Streets, on the grass at Cushing Park. He asked a very simple question, one I could not answer, so I’m sending it out on the internet, perhaps one of the local city councilors (Ed Cameron or James Shanley, one with an interest in taking Cushing Park and making it a senior center, the other the ward representative) could answer this for us.
Does this sign have the necessary permits or city council approval to be placed on city property? After all, how would it look to all those downtown businesses who can’t have an A-frame down the street, if we as a city don’t obey our very own rules!
Further, i would imagine a permit must also be obtained to hold a yard sale on city property, so let’s pray that all our ducks are in a row!
