Ugly Billboards at 4th and P Streets, NW To Be Removed by Oct. 6th

A friend of mine lives a couple of blocks away and everytime I’ve passed them I’ve thought they were a terrible eyesore. I’m happy to see that the Bates Area Civic Association has a photo of the removal order which says:

“The notice, authorized by DCRA Director, Linda Argo, cites DC Code that stipulates that billboards must not be located within 200 feet of another billboard and within 200 feet of a residential neighborhood.”

I think this is great news. What do you guys think about billboards like this? What about the big signs on the sides of buildings?
