After years of litigation and lobbying on how the city can regulate both standard and electronic billboards (discussions go all the way back to a city ban on new billboards in 2002), the City Planning Commission is again poised to vote on a new ordinance. On Thursday, October 22, the City Planning Commission will continue its discussion of a new citywide sign ordinance that would finally enact the ordinance proposed in 2009.

In a recent e-mail to billboard opponents after another recent hearing, the group BanBillboardBlight wrote, “the commission didn’t vote on the ordinance, but a majority of members expressed opposition to proposals to grant amnesty to illegal billboards, grandfather “applied-for” sign districts, and allow digital billboards outside sign districts through a conditional use process. The commissioners asked for further information on a separate proposal to allow digital billboards on public property in exchange for takedown of conventional billboards and revenue sharing with the city.”

Public comments can be sent by email to Los Angeles City Planning Commission, with “CPC-2015-3059-CA, Citywide Sign Ordinance Changes” as the subject line, at [email protected]

The hearing is open to the public and are all invited to attend.
