I left town for a few days, only to come back to Little Vegas. Whatever were the folks at HAPO and the city of Kennewick thinking when they decided to turn the flashcube building into the bright-as-the-sun billboard section of Kennewick?
The intersection at Columbia Center Boulevard and Clearwater Avenue has been suddenly transformed into something it should not be. It is an incredible mistake that is not only visually disturbing, but almost certainly will cause a safety issue at one of the busiest intersections in the city.
What was the thought process when it came to something like this? Did anyone really believe this sign promotes what Kennewick wants to show visitors and residents? And to think the folks in Walla Walla were bothered by a mere octopus mural violating their sign ordinance. When they see this sign, they will wonder why they even cared. Hope they bring sunglasses.
