LA Proposes Ban on Billboards, Supergraphics
From the LA Times: The Los Angeles Planning Commission voted Thursday to recommend dramatically reworked restrictions on signs that would ban digital billboards and supergraphics -- the vinyl signs stretched across the sides of buildings -- throughout most of the city.
Sadly, Albuquerque has often followed LA's sprawly, car-centric development model. Here's one LA innovation we SHOULD follow.
Question: We know the hideous collection of billboards on the I-25 soil our spectacular mountain and desert vistas. What does the city get in return for such blight?
