Of the Mayor's approved crop of 32 digital billboards, five will be along Bucktown's stretch of The Kennedy. As the community sees it, that's bad enough. But there's a far more insidious electronic billboard going up in the heart of the neighborhood at Milwaukee and Leavitt that has registered opposition from just about everyone who knows about it, according to The Patch. Ald. Scott Waguespack doesn't care for it either, and Bucktown Community Organization prez Steve Jensen has asked him to look into halting its construction. Says Jensen: "Whether they're new static or new digital, we don't want them so deep in the neighborhood." [The Patch, photo: Steve Jensen]
