Advice from Dennis, Pres., Coalition to Ban Billboard Blight

I just saw your blog for the first time today. Kudos on fighting against
this kind of outrage, which is unfortunately becoming more and more common
as rogue sign companies and greedy building owners show utter disregard for
tenant safety and rights as well as the visual landscape of the city. The
more people both inside and outside the buildings raise their voices the
more likely it is we can get some action.

I have a few possibilities for you and others to consider.

One is to contact the public relations departments of the companies
involved--in your case, Tropicana.
Another is to write to U.S. District Court Judge Audrey Collins and ask her
why she would enjoin the city from taking any action against World Wide
Rush in this location when there are serious questions of fire safety
involved with these unpermitted installations. Not that you should expect
a reply, but her court is hearing a suit by another supergraphic company
asking for injunctions for 118 locations, and the city is arguing that such
an injunction could endanger public health and safety.

If you want to get regular notices on these and other signage issues facing
the city, I'll add you to our e-mail list. And thanks for the link to our
website. There is strength in numbers.
