The Barney-colored planters being installed on the asphalt of West Howard are an absolute eyesore. This just adds insult to injury in the disaster that is Reimagine West Howard.
Who chose these ridiculous colors? Who decided that putting planters and seating in the street made any sort of sense? Are we to believe that anyone wants to sit on blacktop with road rage speeders hurtling by five feet away? If there was a desire to sit on West Howard don’t you think the existing benches in the grass would be a better choice?
Who is the person who made this decision of behalf of the property-owners of West Howard Avenue? What research was done to assure no negative impact on our property values? Please provide access to all documentation showing proper diligence by the city and who, how and when these decisions were made.
