ARLINGTON Motorists who pass the intersection of Smokey Point Boulevard and Highway 530 might have noticed two gigantic frames being built.
They are for two billboard-sized signs and will provide revenue for the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, according to Ed Goodridge Jr., executive director and vice chairman of the Tribe.
We did a deal with Clear Channel, Goodridge said. Well be leasing ad space to them on the two signs by the smoke shop, and on two other signs by the casino.
Goodridge noted that the Tribe will have no control over the content of the ads, other than that they not contain obscenity. He declined to speculate on how much revenue they might raise. He did clarify that the Tribe is not associated in any way with two similar billboard-sized sign frames that have been built on Smokey Point Boulevard, about a mile south of SR 530.
Weve been fielding calls about the signs by the wrecking yard and the Puget Sound Kidney Center, but we have absolutely nothing to do with those, Goodridge said. Were not the only ones putting up signs.
