The city council makes the following findings:
(A) Unregulated placement and size of newsracks in public rights-of-way can pose threats to the public health, safety and welfare.
(B) These regulations provide ample opportunities for the siting of newsracks in locations that safeguard and encourage safe pedestrian and vehicular movements in the vicinity of newsracks.
(C) Unregulated size and color of newsracks can contribute to a blighted street scape. A blighted street scape discourages economic investment and leads to a negative balance between government services necessary for an area and the ability to pay for such services.
(D) These regulations provide clearly defined sizes and colors for newsracks which will help provide an aesthetic street scape that discourages blight.
