I had to comment on this article on the original site because I was looking up information regarding how Oak Park, IL determines its signage and ran across this craziness:
I personally think that Oak Park, Il has way TOO much signage or maybe even that Oak Park, IL has too much, of the wrong signage instead of worrying about people not parking on Tuesday between 8am to 10 am, how about directions to downtown Oak Park, Il from other parts of the village? Maybe even signage regarding directions (as the article states) to where one can get to the modes of transportation that connected to Oak Park, IL to the outside world. This would bring outside (of Oak Park, IL) consumer dollars into Oak Park, IL and may even alleviate some of the traffic woes it faces on a daily basis.
I mean the village of Oak Park, IL made this big thing about joining the Divvy Bike Program, however as this article states there is no signage regarding it? Huh? Does that make a lot of sense or does it seem like a bunch of taxpayer dollars being thrown away, again by Oak Park, IL?
The good thing about this proposal is that nothing is binding considering the fiscal mess that the state of Illinois is in, is creating more and revamping the signage of Oak Park, IL really a huge priority? How about getting some of the construction sites around the area completed first, then worry about how pretty the signs in Oak Park, IL look, second?
But of course appearance is everything in Oak Park, IL, regardless of how chaotic and rotten everything else is, so long as it is what we say it is! And a duck is a duck, if we say it is, no matter what it is! Especially if it is actually a steamy piece of …. Well.
