Newburyport Development is putting the prime parking spots at the Fitness Factory to good use--advertising.
Two trucks were parked on the lot Monday night. One of them was the Harborside catering trucks that's seen around town. But the other sported rotating ads for Boat Club USA, the business based in the former Hilton building that houses Plum Island Roasters and Boat Camp.
Coincidentally, the City Council that night was set to discuss a bylaw that would regulate "movable signs," which would have covered both A-frame sidewalk signs and trucks sporting huge advertisements like these or the one sporting the Biofuels ad. But the council postponed the vote to settle some confusion over what version of the regulation should be discussed.
