What’s wrong: Environmentally unfriendly signs promoting environmentally friendly lights. 

Who’s responsible? Phil Townsend, director Infrastructure and asset mgmt, , 490-7166.

Remarks: Reader Lee Stafford alerts us to these “poorly designed and poorly installed vinyl posters on all of the street lampposts in our neighbourhood” along Devonshire Avenue. The signs promote the new LED traffic lights but, notes Stafford, the vinyl signs will end up in the landfill. The signs were put up by the infrastructure department, but don’t meet the city’s graphic standards and are “not an effective use of signage,” says city spokesperson Shaune MacKinlay. They’ll be taken down.
