L.A. Planning Commission votes to regulate mega-billboards

March 26, 2009 |  6:22 pm


The Los Angeles Planning Commission voted this morning to approve a dramatically reworked billboard law that would ban digital billboards in most parts of the city and place new restrictions on supergraphics -- vinyl signs placed on the sides of buildings.

Our sister blog, L.A. Now, has the full story here.

Architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne wrote here earlier that he doesn't object to the new superbillboards.
