The clutter in the public realm at University and College is ghastly. There's already a pole by the curb for the street light, yet there are those massive arms extending from another pole so that the traffic signals can be hung over the roadways. Topping it off is a third kind of pole inches away from the street lighting pole presumably for the TTC. And all of this is in front of the grand landmark that is Ontario's legislative building. Is it so inconceivable to the agencies putting this stuff up that a little coordination can make for a more attractive city? It's a basic matter that most big seem to have figured, at least in the places that matter the most.
