Continuing downtown progress

It was interesting to read the recent story about the city council suggesting charging billboard companies to raise money to clean up graffiti. I have a better suggestion: They should ban all billboards in the downtown area.

If the council wants to attract visitors to our city, some things that would help are: reduce downtown vehicle traffic, eliminate surface parking lots and get rid of the unsightly billboards. Creating a walkable, visually attractive city core would continue the progress made by the recent Riverfront Park makeover.
