Last May the GUARDIAN wrote a detailed post urging Team Dave, the G-Bad Boys, ACHD, Downtown Business Ass–SOMEONE–to get busy and put up some directional signs in Boise.
Instead of taking care of what we have and enjoying our place in this great country, Boise Brass seems intent on just building, expanding, and cutting deals with developers in classic growthophile style.
We think it is shameful to make claims of making Boise the most “livable city in America” and failing to offer simple directional signs. Little Old Independence, Missouri has great signs directing visitors to President Harry Truman’s home on Deleware St. and to the Truman library.
We need signs like the one at the right to direct folks to places like BSU, Old Pen Museum, Capitol Building, Fairgrounds, Lucky Peak, Warm Springs, Depot, Airport, Center on Grove, etc.
The city should be filled with these signs at every major intersection with the listed sights (sites) and arrows. How about some readers making a few phone calls and letters to the editor?
