City cites citizen complaints in removal of CityPlace billboards

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) The billboards around the CityPlace construction in Burlington are gone after complaints from citizens.

In their place are weathered plywood panels, some painted blue.

City officials say the billboards were removed in response to citizens complaining the signs violated the state's billboard law.

Once the complaints reached officials in May, they asked the developer, BTC Mall Associates, to take them down. The company complied.
