Should highway billboards return in Maine?

This week, ClickBack asks editorial page readers a question inspired by the royal wedding, as well as questions about eliminating the Maine House of Representatives, suburban growth and highway billboards. To participate, visit bangordailynews.com.

This is the last week the BDN will offer the ClickBack feature. It was designed over three years ago to encourage readers of our print product to visit our then-newly revamped website. Traffic at our website is now up to 7.5 million page views per month, so we believe it is time to offer our opinion page readers a different, more in-depth interactive feature. Next week, we will launch The Maine Debate, a feature that will allow readers to discuss key issues with the BDN editorial board and one another, along with experts and advocates on these issues. Look for more details next week.

Should highway billboards return in Maine?

A legislator has proposed a bill that would relax the law banning billboards from Maine’s highways. Is this a good idea? Does the lack of billboards hurt Maine businesses? Or was the billboard law an advance?

Some of the comments posted at ClickBack may be featured on Friday’s OpEd page.
