Do Billboards belong in Newburgh’s East End Historic District?

10 Liberty St. - Proposed Billboard

The photo above is what a proposed billboard will look like on a residential or commercial building. It is up for review at the next Architectural Review Commission meeting this Tuesday, September 10th. The commission would really like to hear how the public feels about such billboards on historic structures. If you would like to voice your opinion, attend the next meeting. 401 Washington St. 7:30 pm

  • Billboards will only add to the clutter, the satellite dishes on just about every building already detract enough away from the buildings’ character. Once one billboard appears, the streetscapes will be littered with them. They may speak to a valid issue, but there are better ways to get a message across.
