Signage has been a hot topic for discussion in our comment sections of late, with multiple variance requests going before the city's Planning and Zoning Commission regarding various signs, both digital and otherwise. Should the city update its rules regarding signs — how big, where, how many, etc. — or should the rules remain as they are?

It is not only the signs that are a problem. It is anything that detracts from the view including overhead wires, electric poles and even some of the traffic signals seem to have an excessive number of sights to control traffic. Does a intersection really need 3 dozen lights to control traffic? How often is ice a problem on bridges and we have signs all over warning us of ice. It is amazing how people spend money when it is not theirs. When I moved here 30 years ago the city was much easier on the eyes.
