We've had signs and banners in the past, but they've been for events sponsored by the Greenway or one of the localities. This morning, there were a couple of those, as well as the permanent signs telling you about the ecology of the greenway and environs. I don't have much problem with those unless there are too many of them (as there are right now).
The problem was with the sign in the top photo, which appears to be advertising a commercial fitness studio. I, of all people, don't oppose advertising. I co-own a magazine, for heaven's sake. But there are proper places for ads and along the Greenway is not one of them. The fitness sign needs to be put somewhere else.
