Interesting Place - Grenoble

The French city of Grenoble is going to ban all advertising hoardings by next year.

(They will scrap 326 advertising hoardings, including 64 large billboards by April 2015. The mayor has promised to replace the signs and billboards with trees and community noticeboards.

They will be the first city in Europe to do so, although the French village, Forcalquier, implemented a similar ban back in 2009.)
