Last week, “06880” reported on Planning and Zoning’s enforcement of the town’s longstanding ordinance against temporary signs.
The removal of dozens of placards — promoting everything from the Library book sale to (ironically) junk removal — drew dozens of comments.
It’s about time! praised some.
Governmental overreach! howled others.
Predictably, the discussion veered away from the direct topic at hand. Eric Bosch noted that there are 309 permanent signs at Compo Beach alone.
Chris Woods suggested that people send in photos of the “worst” signs in town.
Here’s mine, from Wilton Road:
Hey — this is Westport! Every place here has a school bus stop ahead.
Besides, have you ever seen this sign flashing? How would that even work? Do school buses have a special method to switch on these lights?
That’s my worst/least favorite/most annoying sign (though there are many contenders). What’s yours?
Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. And let us know exactly why that particular sign is worse than all the others.
