Neighbours show dissent over the new proposed LED sign near San Jose’s Valley Fair.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2012 -- Neighbours living around Westfield Valley Fair shopping center will have to deal with a 60-foot-tall, 119 square-foot sign, which will have a 389-square-foot LED screen on each side flashing messages to motorists while also illuminating the neighbourhood.
The sign is along Highway 880 and the people living at the neighbourhood are looking to have a petition of 300 signatures to oppose Valley Fair putting that sign up in the locations. The sign will be visible to homes around the area from six thirty am to eleven pm.
Wolsford’s petition has cited that the traffic safety concerns with the sign’s placement, he is looking to get the sign moved over to the Stevens Creek Boulevard and awar from the Forest Avenue.
Wolsford says that the sign is a major hazard for the drivers especially around this area where a driver needs to pay attention and any distraction can cause accidents. A LED sign in an area like this is a recipe for accidents.
"I think it's going to be a big eyesore to the neighborhood, I'm not happy about it," says Tony Anton, who lives on Daniel Way. "I've lived here 33 years and it has been a nice peaceful neighborhood. Now that sign is going to be on all hours of the night."
Wolsford added that “Wolsford says the sign will not only affect the Cory neighborhood but also O'Connor Hospital across the freeway and some residences on the Rose Garden side of 880.
Scott Vallee is the contact for Westfeild and he has not been returning any phone calls or emails regarding the issue.
