The City of Kingsport regrets the offensive arrangement of the graphics on a recent billboard promoting its leisure website, This is Kingsport, which is intended to be an uplifting and positive representation and resource for our city’s residents and visitors.
The billboard has been removed. Going forward, the city’s communications department will use a more stringent review process for such materials.
The city apologizes for the error. The unintentional presentation of the site’s logo does not reflect the views of city government.
