Personal commentary

I would like to inquire if there are combined efforts that officials from our City, County and State government are willing to enforce to reduce the amount of clutter that exists on our streets from the literally hundreds of signs that are being placed (many illegally) along our roadways.


Any efforts that local citizens contribute to "beautification efforts" in our area, are greatly diminished by the increasing number of these repetitive signs that populate our environment. On a morning drive today from the Adair County line on North Highway 55 to our town square, I counted over 40 signs promoting a specific type of organization. That seems to be a bit of "overkill".

While I am in complete support of permanent/approved signage promoting our local businesses, charitable organizations, churches, etc., the proliferation of these temporary signs across our county is getting way out of control.

Can you imagine for a moment when we add the 2018 political signage that is sure to come to our current sign landscape? That's not something I look forward to seeing in the coming year.

Thank you,

Doug Beard

Doug Beard writes, in his accompanying personal opinion piece, "While I am in complete support of permanent/approved signage promoting our local businesses, charitable organizations, churches, etc., the proliferation of these temporary signs across our county is getting way out of control," and urges coordinated law enforcement to reduce the number - specifically those placed on rights-of-way and public property.
