He did. Plain and simple. He wasted 7 years of his life and hundreds of thousands of dollars on a nothing project that is nothing less than self gratifying. Every night he looks at the sign and says to himself "I did that". If he loved the region so much he would have actually spent the time and money on something to improve the region...not fluff his ego. How about spending the half million on a business? How about giving that money out to struggling small business'? Nope. He wanted to be known as the the guy who built the utica sign. 100% ego with zero benefit to that region yet uticans suck it up like its some home run when in reality people just laugh as they drive by.

Look at it this way. Ask yourself if any other city has a light up, flashing sign? I don't really know of many that do. The reason is that other cities don't need a tacky year 'round Christmas tree to get noticed. Other cities get noticed on their own merit. Utica needs a sign since it is an unremarkable, easy to miss city that has nothing going for it and no reason for anyone to stop here.

Utica is NY's Detroit! Lets face it people if ya ain't left yet it's because your car can't make the trip out, or the grandparents are still alive and you love em.

It's almost funny how hateful most of you are. You sit there complaining and whining like someone is personally targeting you.

A couple of things:
1. The guy that made this used his own money. No taxpayer money is involved. What he does with his money is none of your business or concern. I bet if he built something for his own private use, you'd be complaining less. The fact that he made something that could potentially bring visitors to the area and show a little city pride seems to have you all going berserk!
2. It took as long as it did because due to government regulations/permits/approval. Construction didn't even start until the last year or so. It's not like massive amounts of time have been spent on this over the past 5 years.
3. The sign is intended to be viewed from the Thruway, since the city is not visible from there, and people often forget about the city while passing by. Making the sign a light up tower is just a way to get people to pay more attention to Utica. You people complain like you're disgusted that Utica has a sign. This isn't that weird of a weird thing. It's Utica. People passing by should know.
4. You're all complaining it's so ugly and invasive yet also that you can't see it it from the city and that it's covered with trees. Pick one or the other please. Also, someone said they think it's so ugly and like a UFO from the Thruway. When it lights up at night, it changed colors and looks like a building. How is that so ugly yet you drive right by the Turning Stone Casino with no issue? It's the same concept.

I don't even personally like the sign. I think it would have been better as a legitimate tower. But reading all your negativity has me amazed! No wonder Utica has so much trouble improving. Someone tries to add something beneficial to the area and the public responds with nothing but hate and resentment!
