Riverside Plaza Ad: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?
The Northwest Herald reports the ad is garnering complaints and I want to hear what residents think.
I noticed it while marching in the Algonquin Founders' Days parade at the end of last month. It was hard to miss.
A brand-new, shiny billboard appeared on the side of Algonquin's most famous building. No, I am not talking about historic Village Hall.
On the side of the nearly completed exterior of the infamous Riverside Plaza, there hangs a very large ad featuring a blonde woman with a plunging neckline that says "Let's talk about living here."
The Northwest Herald reported today that while the sign complies with village ordinance, it has been garnering complaints.
Russ Farnum, community development director for Algonquin, said in the article that although the village does not usually regulate the content of a sign, officials have followed up and have not found anything offensive.
So I was wondering, what do residents of Algonquin think about the sign? Do you find it offensive? Too big? Not big enough? Too sexy? The right type of ad for the property?
