Don't destroy my Mayberry!

I love La Canada.  I love the small town upscale feel.  I love walking the streets, including Foothill Boulevard.  But, I did not love my recent sighting of  a huge billboard for Phat Solar above a Foothill building near City Hall.  When did this happen?  Billboards along Foothill will destroy the quintessence of our lovely city and turn it into something akin to Sunset Strip.  I certainly don't want that to happen.  Do you?

La Canada is a wonderful city. And it's mostly due to a lack of something other than billboards.

Good to know an opposite viewpoint. Do you favor the billboards or just not mind the billboards?

Hello Catherine. Let's face it, you're a woman, and I'm a man. So we might have to accept that we see things a little differently. For example, you see billboards as the problem with Sunset Blvd., whereas I see bigger problems with Sunset Blvd. that I don't want in La Canada. But to answer your question, I would need more information. For example, if a billboard is on public property, it might bring significant revenue to the city. So if the location and revenue are acceptable, and the numbers are limited, the idea should probably be considered, and perhaps voted on. I'm open to all points of view. Sell me, I vote. Cheers.

Billboards have no place in Mayberry!
