City doesn’t need expensive new signs
I can’t understand all the fuss about the $300,000, 38-piece sign
project in the Burbank Village area.
Doesn’t the city have its own sign shop where they could come up
with a design and make the signs? The city crew could put up the
signs like it is doing all over town.
If the city wants to spruce up the village, it should start by
taking down the ugly 3D “B-B-B” signs at several intersections on San
Give schools the sign money
What’s wrong with this picture? You run a story (“Parents meet to
plan demonstration”) about people protesting against the education
budget crisis and another story (“The cost of finding downtown”)
about a city project for new signs with the potential cost of
$300,000. Where are our priorities? There must be less expensive
signs. And shouldn’t the primary beneficiaries -- the businesses --
help pay for the signs? Why not dump the signs all together and give
the $300,000 to the schools?
