Billboard Blight

The Akron Garden Club views transportation and billboard legislation as significant determinants of the quality of our air, water, plants and scenery.  Therefore, The Akron Garden Club favors legislation that encourages creation and maintenance of suitable scenic byways, emphasizes the protection of the natural landscape rather than billboard visibility and addresses the visual, safety and environmental hazards of electronic billboards.  The club has been a staunch advocate in the City of Akron on billboard control issues, and we strongly encourage citizens to take an active stand regarding their communities’ billboard legislation.
