Tone Down West Towson School Sign, Hairston Told
Published on December 22, 2010 – The Baltimore Sun
Two members of the County Council are calling on Baltimore County schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston to change the large sign outside West Towson Elementary School and the Ridge Ruxton School, saying the size and style of the sign could threaten Charles Street’s designation as a National Scenic Byway.
In a letter to Hairston dated Dec. 17, Councilman David Marks and Councilwoman Vicki Almond said they “urge that changes to the signs at West Towson Elementary School and the Ridge Ruxton School reflect the character of this important corridor.”
The sign has been the object of debate since it was installed at the beginning of this school year – when West Towson Elementary School opened in the 6900 block of N. Charles St. on the same campus as Ridge Ruxton.
