I am writing to bring attention to a growing issue in our community – the removal of community posters. As a resident of this area, it is disheartening to see the hard work and effort put into creating these posters only to have them taken down without any explanation or warning.

Not only is this a frustrating situation for those who put up the posters, but it also poses a financial burden on local musicians and businesses who rely on these posters to promote their events and services. In an already challenging economic climate, where many musicians and small businesses are struggling to survive, the loss of these posters only adds to the difficulties they face in reaching their audience.

It is important that we come together as a community to support our local artists and businesses, and one simple way to do so is by respecting the effort they put into promoting their work through posters.

I urge whoever is responsible for taking down these posters to reconsider their actions and to think about the impact it has on our community. We trust that these actions are not being deliberately done by those attempting to force posters to appear behind glass, paid community boards.
