I'm confident all the Utica natives are jumping up and down with joy, and proud of their shiny new warning sign. Now everyone will know exactly where Utica is, and will not mistake it for anyplace else. This sign will soon be a landmark, with people making a pilgrimage to Utica, just to bask under its glow. It will be the Mecca of Central New York. Throngs of people will come to worship at its scaffolding. It will radiate healing powers to all who kneel beneath it! Only in Utica! The hotels in north Utica will become full of Utica Sign pilgrims! The roads will be clogged with traffic as people come to witness the sign. Oh the wonders of the Utica Sign! Soon there will be stories on all the major cable networks about the Utica Sign! There will be mini plastic soveniers sold throughout the region in the image of The Sign. The Sign will be the salvation of Utica! It will draw so many people to this area, that the population will soon rival that of NYC! Forget the Statue of Liberty, everyone will want to see The Utica Sign instead! Yes, the wonders of The Sign will soon unfold. Rejoice, for Utica has been saved!

I fear driving from Albany to buffalo anymore. I know I'll be backed up on the thruway for hours from traffic of people flocking to the sign. Lol

This sign has become the laughing stock of NY State. The few people left that didn't realize we were hicks Know it now. Who encouraged this monstrosity? How soon will it get vandalized by some kid climbing it?

Its only a matter of time until some idiot drunk Utica kid dares his drug crazed Utica buddy to climb the damn thing.

The Utica sign money could have been used for something (anything) better to benefit Utica. Kind of says a lot for the collective mentality. It is not going to promote Utica - just the opposite, it will embarrass you and eventually be removed (maybe after the third or forth kid falls off it).

Hope it is at least solar powered, or will it be sucking power off the grid?

Actually, there are some beautiful lighting elements in the works that will enhance its look and visibility in the works. Remember the stock in trade of the donors.

But what do I know ;)

It is a bit of a test bed for some technical and communication platforms that are a little too mentally taxing for most of the primordial uticans to understand. In the future every large population center will have one.

Also, the owners can afford the power so don't let your own experiences with utility affordability dictate your idea of what theirs is.

There are features and a fence planned that will prevent people from climbing it, and an alarm if they do, and I do not really think anyone important to the issue really cares about some loser from utica jumping off of it. Que Sura - Sura

looks like shit/ UTICA is just to close to UTICA. The red indicates WARNING. So sad all that capital should of been takin a little bit more serious when dealing with tax payer money. Oh, let me clear my throat. The owner ONLY had plans for fence a other accents for the sign until they heard of all the Utica tax payers being pissed and shooting there ideas to help that cokehead company that manufactured this mini turning stone casino sign.

The guy that put up the money for the tower construction definitely has a parallel objective of utilizing the 100-plus foot tower in that area. My guess is that he inked a deal with AT&T to provide much-overdue 4G LTE service to an area that is in the LAST 10% to be activated in the supposed metro areas of the United States. If this isn't his plan, then I just gave him a great money-making idea...My 2 cents.

It is a plot to empty Corn Hill. They will make it flash like police car lights to draw all the brothers to it and throw bottles at it. It's just racist.
