Dear Asheville Convention and Visitors Bureau: Why have you not employed someone to remove the peeling signs?
We are all very aware about the issues and lawsuits concerning the signs but now they are turning into litter. With leaf season upon us and a certain rise in tourism in the coming weeks, it is simply just embarrassing for the city, not to mention the litter that the material is causing once the peelings fall to the ground and blow away. Why wasn’t a local company hired for the production of the signs?
Please do not tell me that it was too expensive, since this whole ordeal will likely cost much more than what you first expected. Also, why was there even a sign made advertising the Health Adventure’s new development, Momentum, when it likely won’t even exist for another two years? That’s like putting a lame horse in front of a broken cart, don’t ya think?
With Asheville’s recent motto, “Put your money where your heart is, buy local,” maybe you should “put the signs” where they belong: in the trash!
