Scenic Jacksonville trying to block » Group Launches Website To Fight Visual Pollution

Note on the design of the shelters, Ennis Davis from Metro Jacksonville left this comment in response to a comment on the blog:

There is no shelter design to show because a company that will provide them has not been selected. From what I understand, JTA plans to send out an RFP for shelters. So I guess the thought should be to apply pressure to JTA to make sure the RFP includes station design criteria, which could be written to eliminate the crap that lines our streets today from being considered outright.
