State Appeals Panel Orders Digital Billboards Removed; City Councilman Introduces Motion to Review Economic Impact

On Monday, a three judge State appeals panel ruled that approximately 100 digital billboards, installed in Los Angeles since a 2006 legal settlement approved by the LA City Council, must be removed. By Wednesday, LA City Councilman Richard Alarcon had introduced a Motion to review the economic impact of the State Appeals decision – according to the Coalition to Ban Billboard Blight.

The LA Times reports that this ruling impacts both Clear Channel and CBS Outdoor boards – and it’s likely a few will eventually come down in our neighborhood. This should impact all or some of the boards in the following neighborhood locations:  Melrose & Seward, Melrose & Wilton, Melrose & Mansfield, La Brea & Olympic, La Brea & 1st, La Brea & Beverly and La Brea & Melrose…all Clear Channel Outdoor digital boards.

It’s likely that the two outdoor companies will appeal the ruling to the California Supreme Court.  The digital boards represent $100 Million in annual business for them. The LA City Council Motion to review adds an interesting twist to the overall story. This debate is going to start heating up…
