"facing westbound traffic"? Isn't Third St. one-way Eastbound in front of the theater? A lot of good a westbound facing sign will do there.

Welp, kiddies, here we go! Soon downtown Billtown will look like a hodgepodge between Chinatown and Las Vegas. The homely child waring purple polka-dots and orange stripes. What's wrong with 'man-hours', or the simple fact that an individual changing a marquee is NO big deal! I did it for years at the State Theater, and it was never considered to be wasteful "man-hours"... no more than standing around getting paid for nothing, or sweeping the carpet. HEY; maybe the League could save man-hours by investing in a Roomba! I hope that ALL that westbound traffic fulfills the plan, considering westbound walking traffic and the first car in line at the Pine Street traffic light will be the only ones to see it. - Actually I can understand, seeing as Lord Gabe would rather fill the bleachers at Bowman Field than entice theater-goers INTO town. I hope counsel realizes the can-of-worms THIS decision is going to open.

The sign will be facing the Eastbound traffic. The paper was incorrect. The point of the change is to alert passing motorists that there is another theatre downtown, and that Williamsport is a vibrant town with lots going on. There are many people in town who don't even know there is a theatre in the Trade and Transit Center--and it's been there for 13 years now. Mr. Billtown101 needs to chill. It should also be noted that the project will be paid for by the theatre company itself who did not ask or require any kind of funding from the city. I suppose if someone is looking for a can of worms, he will find it.

@ CommunityTheatreLeague, of whom may or may not represent any agent or authority of the C.T.L.: As a citizen of the community, I am not lead by "script" as to my comments or concerns. The article as written however lacked information which necessitates community interest for such concerns, for instance; Planning and Zoning Codes fail to mention or regulate "saving man-hours" however, P&Z Codes DO emphasize "General Regulations for All Signs". WOW, now THERE'S a can 'o worms for ya! You may be able to find it somewhere under the Article regarding "Sign Regulations". If my concerns cause you some form of trepidation, you might consider your comment toward my 'personal opinion' in your next performance of "Big Brother". - HEY, Chill, I'm Acting!!
