Electronic Billboards


While we applaud efforts to reduce over all bill board blight in the City, we do not believe that a proposal that substitutes unsightly and dangerously distracting electronic billboards along our freeways way system in areas that are now open space or important viewsheds, is the way to accomplish this. We also support the small business community in its concerns that advertising for local small businesses will now be out of reach both due to physical location of the signs and the huge financial investment needed to advertise, making billboard ads inaccessible for anyone accept large retailers. We therefore oppose this action and all associated permits and join with many in the business community in asking that this lease not be signed and no plan amendments be granted for use of open space to accommodate digital billboards for the following reasons.
