The Downtown Glendale Merchants Assn. has done a good thing with its beautification project along Brand Boulevard. The friendly clean-up crews leave the sidewalk sparkling with a smile on their faces. Now we have lovely planters on the street corners along Brand.
Unfortunately, smokers have decided those planters are their personal ashtrays. Message to smokers: Knock it off. Put your butts were they belong, not in the planters and definitely not on the sidewalks.
