Keep the ban on LED signs in South Kingstown

    1. Petition by

      Ed White

      Wakefield, RI

Since August 2010, Town Council members have been discussing whether electronic LED signs should be allowed in certain business districts. These signs could be located on Old Tower Hill Road and on Route 108 from the Camden's Bowling Alley to Rhody Joe's and on Route 108 from 138 to the police station. 

Allowing these signs will drastically change the look of our town. These signs are aesthetically unappealing, can cause driver distraction, and are not in line with the charm and character of South Kingstown. That charm and character is one of South Kingstown’s most valuable assets. It is the very reason so many tourists visit South Kingstown and support our local economy.

Support the continued ban on LED signs in South Kingstown.

Sign the petition and let your voice be heard.

      bad for business. People don't come to Wakefield to be in Warwick or Johnston, they come for the laid back beach and college atmosphere

      Just because you *can* doesn't mean you *should* -- LED signs are ugly, distracting, and no more effective than other signs. So what's the reason to allow them?

      no LED in town of Wakefield RI

      Nothing is more lovely than the charm our town offers. I have no problem seeing the businesses that exist here. We don't need more lights for advertizing.
