Where is the Pride In Peabody?

We have all read about the hideous billboard on Lowell St. We have heard our city councilors express their dis-pleasure on this subject. Often referring to the "Quality of Life" in Peabody.

What the public may not know is: The future billboards off Rte.1 are to be constructed on City owned land! See the recent City Council communication below:

Request for vote from City Council: Authorize the Mayor to enter into a
lease agreements on two city-owned sites for outdoor advertising:
Parcel #1 @ 3 Newbury Street (088/009) and Parcel #2 at
0 route One 95/128 (089-006)

The City Councilors are (will be) allowing these eyesores on public land!

When these flashing signs distract your driving you can rightfully blame your city councilors.

Whatever happened to "Pride in Peabody" ?? I was led 2 believe the billboards raise $ for the city…but by the time we pay the lawyers for the "Keilty Korner" mess on Lowell St.,most of us will be pushing up grass !
