You could soon see advertising at some city parks on Oahu.
The Honolulu City Council passed a second reading of a bill that would allow limited advertising.
It would primarily affect Central Oahu Regional Park and the Waipio Soccer Complex, and be limited to fences around the fields and in gymnasiums.
“So it’s very limited advertising, but it would generate revenue, I think, for the city with respect to keeping those facilities up to the level that they should be kept at,” said council member Ernie Martin.
“We go to the parks to go to the beach and relax. We don’t want to see all these billboards and signs up. It just looks too ugly,” said Rose Pou, who is against the idea.
The bill now goes to the budget committee.
