Hey Clear Channel, Clean Up Your Crap! (Part 2)

This blighted billboard beauty is blowing in the wind along Puyallup Ave. as it appears the vinyl ad has revealed a former pasted on message that I think should resonate loud and clear with a company like Clear Channel: Responsibility Matters.

Just one more example why our Tacoma city leaders should not so much as bend on our lawful 1997 sign ordinance nor allow any digital billboards in town.

Lonergan would say, "See? Statics are worse! Digitals don't blow in the wind."

safety hazard! could become detached and blow across somebody's windshield. Mayor Strickland would say that wasn't as distracting as a flashing cross walk man light though.

There may be one like it by your house but, I assure you, this one is not. I blurred out the billboard ID number so as not to help Clear Channel do the work it already should be removing violating billboards and cleaning up their legal ones.

I like that Budweiser is worried about drunk drivers. I feel like i'm trapped in a Joseph Heller novel... Milo Minderbinder!

Billboards are apparently given a free pass against the Safe and Clean initiatives of the City of Tacoma.



BTW, erecting digital billboards is not the solution to the problem. Enforcing the 1997 billboard law which require the removal of digital billboards is.

Call Tacoma Cares about tagging: (253) 591-5001.
(The city keeps calling this graffiti, the actual term is tagging)

from the interwebs:
..... as a property owner, it is your responsibility to care for your property. If graffiti is not quickly removed, it will greatly increase the likelihood of more graffiti vandalism and possibly encourage other types of crime on or around your property.
In January 2007 the City Council voted to strengthen and enforce the revised nuisance codes by abating properties that owners do not clean up on their own. The nuisance code amendments include, but are not limited to, the following features:
1.A call is placed to report a code violation
2.Once the call is taken, a code enforcement officer will drive to the address, take a picture of the violation and post a notice with the picture on the violatorís front door
3.A letter to the property and the property owner will be sent with details of the violation
4.Eighteen (18) days will be given the property owner to amend the violation
5.If, after 18 days, the violation has not been addressed by the property owner, the City will send a crew to clean up the violation
6.The property owner will be charged for the clean up; which generally runs about $300 - $500.

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
