Yesterday, “06880” readers mourned the loss of 2 sycamore trees, on the Post Road between Starbucks and the diner.
(Some did, anyway. Other readers said “mind your own business.”)
Today’s post is about growing things. Specifically, advertising signs. They’re less than a mile from the felled trees, on the traffic island at the intersection of North Avenue and Long Lots.
An alert — but anonymous — “06880” reader writes:
There are 8 signs posted there, and it’s not even election season.
Doesn’t the town have rules against this? Only 2 of the signs are for school plays. Who enforces this? Can I make a few dozen signs for my business, and plant them all over town? What are the guidelines and penalties (if any) for placement of private signs on public land?
The reader continues:
I see a landscape company wanted to stand out from the crowd in the center island. So they put their ad right under the stop sign.
Hey — look on the bright side! They’re a landscaping company. At least they didn’t chop down the tree!
