Who was the dick who came up with this design?
New traffic barriers, known as bollards, are causing some controversy in the Glendale section of Scott Township. It’s not the function, but the form.
“When you really look at all four close together, they look like male body parts, which I don’t think is appropriate,” says Glendale resident Pat Martin.
She raised the issue at Tuesday night’s township commission meeting.
“Everyone’s laughing about them,” she adds, “because of the way they’re put and what they resemble to people.”
Commissioners Eileen Meyers and Pat Caruso disagree.
“We looked through and found something that we thought was pleasing to the eye, but apparently to one person it was not,” Commissioner Meyers says.
Six more of the controversial posts have been installed further down the hill, at the intersection of Carothers and Magazine Street. That brings the total to 10.
Would they tear them all down?
“I can’t imagine spending taxpayers’ dollars for a situation like this because somebody has a narrow mind,” says Commissioner Caruso.
