To the Editor...In support of the garage sale bulletin board idea
By: Sharon Doebler, Pine Journal
To the Editor:
I read the article “A new kind of garage sale sign sprouts in Cloquet” on the front page of last week’s paper and wanted to affirm the suggestion made by City Planning and Zoning Administrator Al Cottingham regarding the possible creation of an outdoor Community Bulletin Board for free community advertising. That sounds like a great idea and a fair alternative to plastering the community with homegrown posters. While I agree with the concerns about safety and the distasteful look of signs plastered everywhere, I also appreciate the need for members of the community to advertise upcoming garage sale events. Online advertising is wonderful, but I can’t believe how many people just like to drive around town taking in the neighborhood sales. Please pass along my endorsement of the Community Bulletin Board idea.
