Radnor Township is considering a ban on aerial advertising.
Have you recently seen low-flying airplanes pulling advertising banners overhead in Radnor Township? Township manager Bob Zienkowski has seen them and he is hoping to have them prohibited from Radnor's airspace. He said it is a public safety issue. The height is extremely low and those planes "don’t sound very good," Zienkowski said. "If that plane comes down that would be a big problem." According to the township, the residents around Villanova University suffer the most from overhead flights that go on, back and forth, for at least an hour. According to township solicitor John Rice, there is case law that supports municipalities who create these ordinances for the good of public safety.
