Signs, Signs Everywhere Are Signs

I don't have much of an opinion on the article in the Telegram by Clive McFarlane titled: Signs point to brouhaha on ordinance.

What did catch my eye was a comment made by Worcester's very own Assistant City Manager Julie Jacobson. Ms Jacobson said.

“The use of digital and non-accessory signs are becoming more popular and we recognize that if we are not thoughtful their proliferation could have negative impacts on our downtown, our residents and our overall economic climate.”

Negative impacts on our downtown?

What downtown is she talking about? Worcester? There is no downtown. Just a bunch of buildings with a few good restaurants and bars and one Dr Gonzo's Uncommon Condiments, other than that there is nothing there to bring people into this barely surviving metropolis.

For your information Ms Jacobson. Worcester's overall economic climate you speak of is similar to a desert. Dry and desolate, with a few scattered signs of life.
