Fireworks Display


This is for you Wisconsinites and every other state that allows the selling and display of fireworks.....

Our great governor (the body) recently legalized the selling of fireworks, which has been illegal for a long, long, time. Now......I'm not against fireworks, heck sometimes I would like to light one up .....(ok, i'm getting carried away).......anyhow, my city is located along a major freeway and sure enough we already have someone who wants to put a large billboard and sell firecrackers.....

There isn't anything I hate more than driving through (beautiful) wisconsin and seeing large firecracker signs everywhere you look. This is already making me cringe....my question is for you cities that have had the sale of fireworks legal for a while......what sort of zoning controls do you have?????????
