NORTH HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Add North Hempstead’s town supervisor to the list of opponents of a plan to erect advertising billboards along some roadways in Nassau County.
Judi Bosworth said the electronic signs would be an eyesore.
“In North Hempstead, our homeowners have to accept the Long Island Expressway and its service roads as a fact of life, but they shouldn’t be forced to accept 48-foot-wide, 110-foot-high billboards,” Bosworth told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “We deal with the reality of traffic congestion and pollution. We shouldn’t be adding visual pollution to our highways.”
