Should Satellite Dish Eyesores be more regulated?

Big Ass Satelitte

“Dear PoPville,

Lately, I’ve been noticing satellites in people’s yards. Dish usually puts them on houses in out of the way locations. However, I’ve seen one Dish satellite in the middle of someone’s front yard and I just saw another one being installed like that the other day. The worst case I’ve seen is a huge satellite in Michigan Park. It’s about 8 feet wide and is definitely an eyesore. It looks pretty old and may even be functionally obsolete. I’m curious about whether these are legal and whether people think they should be more regulated. Things like a fence and a shed are regulated so why not satellite dishes? It seems like they should all be mounted out of view from the street unless that’s not possible for some reason.”
