LETTER: Enough huge signs! Plant some trees!

Dear Editor:

I complained to Lisa Herbold -City of Seattle regarding the signage allowed on businesses. Particularly the ridiculously large LA FITNESS that now assaults all of us every day we return to West Seattle; not LA...noting that most people don't even use signage anymore. To find places, they use GPS. So really, signage is just very inexpensive advertising for these corporate chains. LA Fitness has signs on every side of the building! If only they appreciated and wanted to honor the neighborhoods they are planting themselves into! Wouldn't West Seattle look so much better where LA FITNESS is now? At least they would appear to be a part of the community they serve.

What is now next for the WHOLE FOODS complex across the street? As things go, once somebody goes huge like LA FITNESS, everybody else tries to "keep up"!

Enough huge electric signage!!! Plant some trees instead!!!
