Greene County supervisors acknowledged the value of the scenic vistas of Sheandoah National Park when they required a telecommunications monopole to be painted "Sky Blue." The intent was to have the tower blend into the background for nearby residents, looking up at it.

For those living further away and for most visitors, the color stood out in clear contrast to the forested mountains in the background. One county syupervisor called it "Sky White," and the elected officials debated whether to spend $25,000 to have the monopole repainted.1
