Red and white planters need to be repainted to restore beauty

  I was just beginning to appreciate the work done in making the new shopping center blend aesthetically with the rest of Woodinville. The park area, the use of trees and shrubs, has been well planned and has produced a pleasing environment.
  
   However, suddenly the beauty has been ruined by the addition of two wooden planters painted bright red and white and placed outside of Firestone. These unsightly objects spoil the whole atmosphere that the planners worked hard to create. I urge the owners to repaint them in colors more suited to the overall theme of the new town center.
