Is there Billboard pollution in Colorado?
Some states dont allow billboards. I was wondering if Colorado is one of them.

It's generally allowed and there are no shortage of them, though there are probably a few local areas where they are banned.

Billboards annoy me. I think there are too many of them up and down the Front Range. I wasn't even that conscience of them until just now!

I think they should be banned, along with commercials and spam. What about the money though? How are you gonna stop advertising?

I'm sure California will lead the way.

Haa haaaa ha You know it is funny how until someone makes mention of something like to many billboards or what not that you never really see it..,but when it is brought to your attention all of the sudden it becomes annoying..=-)

I was just curious is all. It seems like so many of the pretty areas of the country are bill boardified taking away from the natural surrounding beauty that could be seen if they werent there standing tall.
Oh well.

I'd agree. Seriously though, I googled it and it appears that there are places in North Carolina and California that are working on it.

It seems like it wouldn't be too bad if they'd at least zone these things properly.

For example, Denver could have them stacked up on top of each other along Pena Blvd. (road to and from the airport) and nobody would care much. But I don't recall seeing many as you pass Denver West up I-70(heading into the hills). Then again, it's been a while since I've been up that way.

They could plaster Western Kansas with the things and maybe keep drivers from falling asleep. Sorry Western Kansas, just a joke.

Yrs ago there were more than now. But I thought those we see now must be on private land. I really don't know but I thought the deal was that it could not be interfered with if on private. Any way that was my understanding. People are telling me what I can do and cannot do with my land other ways. So why can they not stop signs?

I think Montana has billboard restrictions all through the state as well as Alaska and maybe Idaho(?) . I just think that if you have a beautiful country to show and appreciate why ruin it with bill boards and EX-LARGE posters of women laying out in their undies and men holding bear in their hands.

I don't know about you,but it take a lot away from what we could be looking at beyond those Billboards.
Just my opinion

I believe Scottsdale, AZ recently banned billboards, as a start.

Thinking about this, perhaps the state government could levy a special property tax on land with billboards. That would probably get rid of a lot of billboards, and make a nice revenue stream for those that remain. Right now, the public gets no benefit from billboards.
