Municipal poster poles, intended to make downtown postering less random and more attractive, are beginning to look awfully unattractive. 

Municipal poster poles, intended to make downtown postering less random and more attractive, are beginning to look awfully unattractive.


Remarks: It’s impossible to completely regulate postering, but the poster poles (like this Spring Garden example, maintained by the DHBC) still make the effort. We’re not opposed to the poles in theory—they provide a valuable service, and their phallic design makes us giggle and blush like a schoolgirl. But the poles are beginning to look shabby. Amateur On Patrollers sometimes complain that old posters aren’t taken down in a timely fashion. Well…in our humble opinion, the bigger concern is the growing number of old staples and poster scraps that now cover the polls. Any chance of a spring cleaning?


Who's Responsible?: The Downtown Halifax Business Commission. 423-6658.
