Residents not happy with plans to start installing Wilson-Lamon digital billboard on Monday - Nadig Newspapers - Northwest Side Local Newspapers
by BRIAN NADIG A plan to start installing a digital billboard on Monday, May 7, in the eastbound lane of traffic in front of the Mayfair Pumping Station, 4850 W. Wilson Ave., was not well-received at a May 2 community meeting.
Gary, this is from the article: Under the terms of the billboard contract, the city is obligated to either honor the location or find another site which meets the comparable worth clause in the billboard contract.
So either the city or the alderman are not interested in trying to find an alternative location.
Our Alderman voted against this deal when it was up in the city counsel. His hands are tied by the other Aldermen who approved this deal. Though I am not a fan of going down to 1 lane, this is what a compromise looks like. At least there will remain 2 way traffic through the area.
