My former DDA boss (budget axe forced me to the private sector) mentioned the new DDA banners to me. This is something I've been pushing on Urban Planet for several years; the light standards came with brackets, and a little bit of funding would go a long way towards dressing up DT.
Earlier posts to the thread contain many examples of my photoshopping.
He mentioned the Streets dept concerns about windloading, and I told him that I have professional structural engineers in my rolodex. (Before my telecom company collocates on anyone else's tower, we run a structural. And vice versa.)
It occurred to me that we might be able to utilize (there, I'm talking like a planner again!) another DDA's facts & figures regarding light pole banners. (The GRAM's creative bungie cords are visible in the close-up shot.)
Anyone have details about the windload of DDA banners? (Yes, I have watched the video on Kalamazoo Banner's website.)
