Can We Do a Better Job of Keeping Our Lampposts Clutter Free?

Some lampposts in Park View still have bumper stickers campaigning for Frank Smith, who last represented Ward 1 on the DC Council over 13 years ago

Here’s one of the smaller things in life that annoys me. Posters, flyers, and placards that are posted to lampposts (and other surfaces) and don’t get removed after their usefulness has passed. While the  D.C. Municipal Regulations 24-108 provide clear guidelines for posting and removing posters, I don’t get a sense that anyone knows the regulations, follows the regulations, or enforces the regulations.

The rule for taking down posters is very generous, giving people a month to remove postings (24-108.6).  Still, I would like to see a bit more follow through with flyers that have expired, especially for those seeking assistance with lost pets which are move prevalent on the residential side streets than other types of flyers.

Bottom line — If you put them up, please take them down.
