PRIORITY OF QUALITY
This summary report of the Commission on Highway Beautification finds that given the inevitable conflict of positive and negative effects from highways the primary purpose of beautification programs should be to humanize highways to enhance the quality of life and human experience. Emphasis should be placed on the development of visual quality of highways and planning for the use of undeveloped land. Attention to visual quality should be considered as an essential element in the necessary development of highway corridors. The program to control outdoor advertising continues to deserve attention, but not to the virtual exclusion of other equally important beautification activities. Efforts to control junkyards and abandoned vehicles should be pursued vigorously and coordinated with programs for solid waste management and recycling of materials.
