In Uzhgorod permits for outdoor advertising are still in force
According to the head of Municipal Economy Department Oleksiy Kasperov, members of the Executive Committee agreed on the installation of the "road billboard on the anvil, where the directions will be indicated and commercials will be placed", meaning the signpost, that will be installed near the 16-storeyed building. It will be "decorating" the neighbourhood for 5 years.
As for the other 6 billboards for which members of the executive committee prolonged permits until October 1 next year, they are not new, but existing, stressed Kasperov, and do not belong to the zone of the historic center.
A year ago, in early November of 2011, Uzhgorod executive committee upheld the decision to declare a moratorium on the installation of outdoor advertising facilities. However, even the inventory of existing advertisement facilities still have not been found, or at least, the public does not know about it. Also, as uzhgorod.in already wrote, recently the government prolonged the permits for advertising structures on the supporting wall of the Uzh, despite the promises "to consider their removal after the valid permits will have expired."
