The Rockwall City Council voted last week to banish all the banners and signs from Ridge Rd. @ I-30 – and perhaps other locations throughout the city – beginning in August.
According to initial reports, many area residents have complained that the banners look too tacky and trashy and Council members agreed.
Certainly most of these signs are too small for drivers to read anyway. I’ve never understood why organizations put up banners that are too small to read.
There is some talk that the City will continue to post banners and signs about City events. There’s some question about how appropriate that is, according to at least one Council member I spoke to, if all the other banners are being banished.
We’ll find more and report details soon at TheRockwallNews.com.
